The Powerball drawing on Wednesday night did not produce any grand prize winners for the $63 million jackpot. However, several people were able to win smaller monetary prizes from the latest drawing.

The winning lottery numbers drawn on June 23 were 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, with a red Powerball of 1. The Power Play was 3X.

No one won the $63 million jackpot, which had a cash value of $44.9 million, and there were also no instant millionaires that resulted from the night.

Players who would have hit the Match 5 could have won $1 million. Meanwhile, players who would have hit the Match 5 with the Power Play could have won $2 million.

However, some players were lucky enough to snag some series cash from the Wednesday night drawing. Following the latest jackpot drawing, eight people hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball, winning $50,000.

Two players hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball with a Power Play, winning $150,000. Other players won prizes between $4 to $300 following the latest drawing.

Since there were no grand prize winners from the Wednesday night Powerball drawing, the jackpot has now grown to $75 million with a cash option of $53.4 million.

Lottery winners have the option of receiving their winnings through a one-time lump sum payment or an annuity.

Those who select the annuity option are guaranteed to receive one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments. Each year the payments increase by 5% until the final payment is made. 

The lottery can be played in 45 states as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

The next Powerball drawing will take place on Saturday night.
