Powerball Jackpot Reaches $865 Million as No Winners Claim Prize



The Powerball jackpot has soared to an astounding $865 million, capturing the attention of lottery enthusiasts across the nation. The recent lack of big prize winners in both the Powerball and Mega Millions has led to these colossal jackpots, with the Mega Millions pot currently standing at a staggering $1.1 billion. The last Powerball jackpot was claimed in Michigan back in January, with the lucky winner walking away with a massive $842.4 million.

For those eager to try their luck, the next Powerball drawing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, at 10:59 p.m. ET, or 7:59 p.m. Arizona time. The potential cash value of the jackpot is estimated at $416.1 million, making it an irresistible opportunity for many hopeful players. The winning numbers for the previous drawing were 7, 11, 19, 53, 68, and the Powerball was 23 with a Power Play of 2X.

Despite the immense jackpot, no fortunate soul managed to snag the $813 million prize from the most recent Powerball drawing on Monday night. While the grand jackpot eluded players, two individuals from Florida and New York did match the first five numbers correctly, securing a $1 million reward each. In Texas, over 113,000 players managed to win at least $4, with some lucky Texans pocketing $100,000 or $50,000.

If you’re keen on participating in the upcoming draw, the Arizona Lottery provides a handy store locator for ticket purchases. Tickets for the Powerball draw can be acquired for $2, with the option to add Power Play for an additional $1, enhancing the potential winnings. The deadline for purchasing Powerball tickets in Arizona is 6:59 p.m. on the day of the draw.

The Powerball drawing, aired at 10:59 p.m. ET on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, offers players the chance to win big by matching all six numbers on their ticket. However, even if the jackpot remains unclaimed, there are various prize tiers for matching fewer numbers, providing players with additional winning opportunities. The lottery also presents winners with payout choices, allowing them to receive the jackpot either as an annual payment spread over 30 years or as a lump sum payment.
