Powerball Grand Prize Soars to $935M for Upcoming Drawing

If a lottery player hits the grand prize on the upcoming drawing, they would be taking home the fifth-largest jackpot in the history of the game

Wednesday marked the latest drawing of the popular lottery game, Powerball. While millions of lottery aficionados tried their luck, no one was able to hit the game’s jackpot. After the latest drawing, the grand prize from Powerball has now surpassed $900 million for the first time this year.

The jackpot from Powerball is estimated at a staggering $935 million for the upcoming drawing. The cash value of the grand prize is also worth mentioning, a whopping $449.7 million. Still, it is important to note that the aforementioned sums are before the applicable taxes.

Wednesday’s Powerball drawing included winning white balls 37, 46, 57, 60, 66, as well as red Powerball 8. The game’s Power Play multiplier was set at 2x. And while no one guessed correctly all winning numbers to secure the grand prize, three lottery players matched all five white balls. The players, one in Arizona, Texas and Pennsylvania, took home $1 million each. Sadly, nobody secured a Power Play $2 million prize from the latest drawing.

Within the lower prize tiers, 44 tickets won $50,000 each, while seven ticket holders pocketed a $100,000 Power Play prize each for guessing correctly four white balls along with the red Powerball. On the other hand, 2,110 lottery players who guessed correctly three white balls along with the red Powerball won $100 each, while 533 secured a $200 Power Play prize each.

The Estimated Jackpot Is the Fifth-Largest Grand Prize for Powerball

Overall, there were more than 1.7 million winning tickets within all different prize tiers from Powerball’s drawing on Wednesday. The next draw of the popular lottery game is scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2024.

If somebody hits the jackpot on the upcoming drawing, they will secure the fifth-largest prize from Powerball. The sixth-largest jackpot from the game was won at the start of the year when a lucky player from Michigan hit the $842 million jackpot at the time. In case no one wins the Powerball jackpot, the grand prize from the lottery game may get even closer or surpass the mind-blowing $1 billion.

Earlier this week, a New Jersey lottery player hit the historic Mega Millions jackpot, a staggering $1.13 billion. The incredibly lucky player guessed correctly the numbers from Mega Millions’ recent drawing which were 7, 11, 22, 29, 38 and Mega Ball number 4, securing the mind-blowing grand prize from the popular game. The $1.13 billion jackpot sum applies if the winner selects annual payments. In case they want a lump cash sum, they can collect a whopping $537.5 million.
