The best in the world are out there busting their humps in the cold to bring home Olympic gold, but the lottery is anyone's game. All you need is a ticket. Check out the results for Saturday, Feb 8, to see if you drew the winning numbers.

The winning numbers for the Powerball games are: 24 25 34 37 54 PB 29

The Powerball website tells the tale of some recent winners:

“Today, Gov. Dave Heineman presented David and Erica Harrig of Gretna a temporary award check for $61.45 million dollars from the Nebraska Lottery Powerball jackpot. The Gretna couple had one of two winning tickets in the nation for last week's $122.9 million Powerball jackpot.”

The Powerball website later adds:

“David Harrig purchased the winning ticket at Speedee Mart in Gretna on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 1:34 p.m. CT. The ticket matched all six numbers from the Dec. 11 Powerball drawing: 1, 10, 13, 18, 19 and Powerball 27. A second jackpot winning ticket was sold in Massachusetts, so the Harrig's share of the prize is split with the Massachusetts's winner, bringing the Harrig's prize to $61.45 million paid out annually over 29 years, or $34.18 million if they select the lump sum cash option.”

The site also urges players to play responsibility:

“Lottery games are just that--games. Lottery games are designed to be enjoyable entertainment for adults, and for the vast majority of lottery players, that's exactly what they are. Multi-State Lottery members sell lottery tickets for the benefits of their citizens, raising millions of dollars for worthy causes and projects.The Multi-State Lottery Association encourages all lottery players to be responsible in their amount of play. Never spend more than you can afford on any lottery product. Please remember, it's just a game.”
