Record-breaking Powerball jackpot increases to $835M for Wednesday drawing

posted in: Mississippi News | 0

The Powerball jackpot has risen to an estimated $835 million after no ticket matched the winning numbers drawn on Monday night.

The winning numbers were white balls 10, 12, 22, 36, 50, and red Powerball 4 with a Power Play multiplier of two.

Monday’s drawing produced more than 1.2 million winning tickets across the country, including three in Florida and one in Oregon that matched all five white balls to win $1 million prizes.

Other big wins from Monday night include 32 tickets that won $50,000 prizes and six tickets that won $100,000 prizes.

The grand prize is now ranked as the game’s second-largest jackpot of the year, as well as the fourth-largest in Powerball history.

The last record-breaking Powerball jackpot was won in California on July 19, with the overall prize totaling $1.08 billion — the game’s third jackpot to ever reach the billion-dollar mark. A few months prior, a $754.6 million jackpot was won in Washington on February 6.

The upcoming drawing on Wednesday night will be the 30th in the current jackpot run following the last hit in July.

If a player wins the jackpot on Wednesday night, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $835 million or a lump sum payment estimated at $390.4 million.

The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
