The Powerball winning numbers for Nov. 28, 2012 were announced at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday’s Powerball results are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29, and the red Powerball number is 6. The estimated jackpot at the time of drawing was nearly $580 million annuity according to CNN.com, and the cash option was $360.2 million. Both amounts are before taxes.
UPDATE: There were two winning Powerball jackpot tickets sold for the Nov. 28, 2012 drawing. The Powerball winners purchased their winning tickets in Arizona and Missouri.
The Nov. 28 Powerball jackpot is currently the largest lottery jackpot in the world now, and the largest Powerball jackpot in the history of the Powerball game. “At $550 million, the Powerball jackpot on Wednesday was the second-largest lottery jackpot in United States history,” said the New York Times on Nov. 28. The largest jackpot of $656 million was split by three Mega Millions lottery winners from Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland on March 30, 2012.
According to CNN.com,
Author and financial expert Dave Ramsey told CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” that the huge jackpot provides “false hope.” Players, instead, would be better off investing the money, he said. Yolanda Vega, spokeswoman for the New York Lottery, told Morgan that Powerball provides a “source of entertainment, an opportunity to dream and to hold on to what they believe can happen positively and hopefully for the best for all and all the people around them.
If no one wins tonight’s Powerball jackpot, it most likely will trump the record-breaking $656 million Mega Millions jackpot, and may even go as high as $700 million. What would you buy with all that money if you end up being the Nov. Powerball jackpot winner? At that point, the sky’s the limit. You could buy anything your heart desires!
