7th Largest Powerball Jackpot Estimated at $680 Million for Wednesday Draw

Players will have the chance to play for the seventh largest Powerball jackpot in the next drawing on Wednesday, Oct. 26. The jackpot is currently estimated at $680 million ($326.1 million cash).

The Powerball jackpot rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Monday night – white balls: 18, 23, 35, 45, 54 and red Powerball 16.

Participating lotteries are reminding players to check their tickets for one of the nine ways to win. More than 1.2  million tickets won cash prizes totaling $13.7 million in Monday’s drawing, including one ticket in Texas that matched all five white balls to win $1 million. Other notable wins include 32 tickets that won $50,000 (Match 4+PB) and 10 tickets that won $200,000 (Match 4+PB+Power Play).

The Powerball jackpot was previously won on August 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot. Since then, there have been 35 drawings in a row without a grand prize winner. Wednesday’s drawing will be the 36th draw in the jackpot run.

In addition to the August 3 jackpot, there have been four other Powerball jackpots won in 2022, including a $632.6 million jackpot hit on January 5 and split by winners in California and Wisconsin; a $185.3 million jackpot won on February 14 in Connecticut; a $473.1 million jackpot won on April 27 in Arizona; and a $366.7 million jackpot won on June 29 in Vermont.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. More than half of all proceeds from the sale of a Powerball ticket remain in the jurisdiction where the ticket was sold. Powerball drawings are broadcast live every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee. Powerball drawings are also live streamed online at Powerball.com.

Jackpot winners may choose to receive their prize as an annuity, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment. Both advertised prize options are prior to federal and jurisdictional taxes.  The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

To date, Powerball holds the world record for largest jackpot set in 2016. The record $1.586 billion jackpot was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
