Powerball Jackpot Reaches $935 Million With No Winner

The Powerball jackpot continues to soar, reaching an estimated $935 million for Saturday’s drawing after no grand prize winner emerged on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s winning numbers were 37, 46, 57, 60, 66, with the Powerball number 8. Despite no jackpot winner, three tickets matched the first five numbers, earning $1 million each. These tickets were sold in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Texas, according to the Powerball website.

Should someone win Saturday’s drawing, they could opt to receive the money through annuitized payments or a lump sum estimated at $449.7 million. This is the first Powerball jackpot to surpass $900 million this year, with the last jackpot winner being in January, scoring $842.4 million in Michigan. Since then, there have been 37 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner.

The largest Powerball jackpot ever won was a staggering $2.04 billion by a ticket purchased in California in November 2022, making it the largest US lottery prize in history. Saturday’s estimated $935 million jackpot would rank fifth on Powerball’s all-time list.
