Powerball Jackpot Soars to $835 Million After No Winner in Monday’s Drawing
The Powerball jackpot has reached a staggering estimated amount of $835 million after no lucky winner claimed the grand prize in Monday night’s drawing, making it the fourth-largest in the game’s history. Powerball announced that no tickets matched the winning numbers, which were 10, 12, 22, 36, 50, and the Powerball 4.
The upcoming Wednesday drawing will now offer a cash prize of $390.4 million, according to the Powerball website. This jackpot is set to be the second-largest Powerball jackpot of 2023, trailing only behind three previous prizes exceeding $1 billion, as reported by the Multi-State Lottery Association.
Since a winning ticket was sold in California on July 19, there have been 29 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner. That ticket had awarded the lucky winner a remarkable $1.08 billion. However, Monday’s drawing did produce some big winners. Three tickets sold in Florida and one in Oregon matched five of the numbers, securing $1 million prizes, as confirmed by the Powerball website.
According to Powerball, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million – making it an extremely challenging feat to accomplish. This Monday’s grand prize was initially set at $793.6 million. Moreover, there were four lucky individuals who matched all the white balls without the Powerball, resulting in millionaire wins. Three of these tickets were purchased in Florida. It’s worth noting that the last drawing to produce a grand prize winner was on July 19.
With the Powerball jackpot skyrocketing to unprecedented heights, anticipation is building as players eagerly await the Wednesday drawing. The thrill of potentially becoming a multi-millionaire with a single ticket purchase brings excitement and hope to millions across the nation.
