The multi-state lottery game Powerball held its Wednesday drawing last night. And while the excitement around last night's drawing was considerably less than the excitement and anticipation that surrounded Saturday's drawing in that same game for more than $1.3 billion there were still 34.2 million reasons to be excited about the game.

I am guessing you picked up on the "34.2 million reasons" as the amount of money that could have been won playing Powerball for the Wednesday, April 10, 2024, drawing in that game. Yes, the top prize was just over $34 million, and here is the way that drawing played out last night.

If you were unable to watch the drawing, here is how the balls bounded out of the hopper. The winning numbers were:

06   07   12   24   36   Powerball 15  Power Play x2

Please verify your numbers at the Official Powerball website or the Official Texas Lottery website. Powerball game officials tell us that no ticket sold across the game's footprint matched all the numbers needed to claim the top prize of more than $34 million. But we can confirm the largest prize in Wednesday's drawing belongs to a Texas-sold Powerball ticket.
