Six Winning Match 5 Tickets in Christmas Day Drawing

The POWERBALL® jackpot is rolling through the holidays! The jackpot for the Monday, Dec. 27 drawing has climbed to $416 million ($299.5 million cash value).

There were no jackpot winners in the Christmas Day drawing, however, six tickets matched all five white balls. The winning Match 5 tickets worth $1 million were sold in California* (4), South Carolina and Tennessee. (*In California, Powerball prize amounts are pari-mutuel and will vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners.)

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in California in the Oct. 4, 2021 drawing when a single ticket won a massive $699.8 million grand prize. Since then, there have been 35 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner.

The current jackpot run has created 29 winning Match 5 tickets ($1 million), 7 winning Match 5 + Power Play tickets ($2 million), and more than 18.4 million winning tickets across all prize tiers.

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.
