PHOENIX – A West Valley Powerball player won a pretty sweet consolation prize during Wednesday night’s near-record drawing.

A ticket purchased at the Shell gas station at 67th Avenue and Cactus Road in Peoria matched all five white balls, which is good for $1 million. But because the player added the $1 Power Play multiplier option to the $2 entry, the payout was doubled to $2 million.

Five other Arizona tickets, including four sold in the Phoenix area, each matched four white numbers plus the Powerball to win a combined $300,000.

An entry purchased at the Safeway at Desert Foothills Parkway and Chandler Boulevard in Phoenix’s Ahwatukee Foothills neighborhood included the Power Play option, resulting in a $100,000 payday.

In addition, tickets sold at the following locations each won $50,000:

  • Circle K at 32nd Street and Greenway Road in Phoenix.
  • QuikTrip at 75th Avenue and Deer Valley Road in Peoria.
  • Circle K at Higley Road and Southern Avenue in Mesa.
  • Terrible’s at 19985 N. Highway 93 in White Hills.

What are the numbers from Wednesday’s Powerball drawing?

With the jackpot at a whopping $1.765 billion, Wednesday’s winning numbers were 22, 24, 40, 52 and 64, with a red Powerball 10.

One ticket sold in the mountain community of Frazier Park, California, matched everything to hit the second-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The winner can choose between the full amount in 30 annual payments or a lump sum of $774.1 million.

Here’s a list of the 10 largest jackpots in Powerball history, with the states where the winning tickets were purchased:

  1. $2.04 billion, Nov. 7, 2022, California.
  2. $1.765 billion, Oct. 11, 2023, California.

Interest rates may have peaked. Should you buy a CD, high-yield savings account, or a fixed annuity?

Interest rates are the highest they’ve been in decades, and it looks like the Fed has paused hikes. This may be the best time to lock in rates for long-term, low-risk financial products like fixed annuities.
