Lotto results: Numbers for Wednesday's $34m Powerball draw

The numbers for Wednesday's Lotto have been drawn and there's a massive $34 million Powerball jackpot up for grabs.

Tonight's numbers are 22, 20, 5, 9, 19 and 24. The bonus ball is 6 and the Powerball is 4.

If a single person wins big with this draw, it'll be the second-largest Powerball prize since the game's beginning in 2001.

The largest-ever Powerball prize of $44.1 million was taken home by a young Hibiscus Coast couple in November 2016. Recently the jackpots have been shared between multiple winners.

Marie Winfield, Lotto's head of communications, says the $34 million prize will likely help more than just the person who wins it.

"Winning Powerball has a huge ripple effect - so many people benefit from that one little yellow ticket, the win is felt right throughout their communities," she says.

Winfield says after people pay off their mortgages or buy property, the next most common theme is helping out friends and family or donating to charity.
