The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated $747 million after no one beat the odds and won the top prize in Saturday night’s drawing.
There were two numbers drawn, the Powerball 10, 15, 19 and 15 respectively.
This Monday’s $747 million Powerball Jackpot is the 9th largest ever in U.S. Lottery history. It also marks the end of a long line of large lottery jackpots. A Maine player was awarded a Mega Millions jackpot of $1.35 Billion less than 3 weeks ago. Last November, a Californian winner won the record-breaking $2.04 Billion Powerball Jackpot.
Due to the low odds of winning, jackpots become so huge because there is only a small chance you’ll match six numbers. That enables the jackpots like Saturday night’s $700 million top prize to roll over and increase for months.
One in 292.2 Million was the most recent time that someone won the Powerball jackpot. It happened on Nov. 19, 2022.
For a winner receiving an annuity for 29 years, the $747million estimate refers to a winner. Winners usually opt for cash, which for Monday night’s drawing would be $403.1 million.
You can play Powerball in all 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S Virgin Islands.
