Upcoming Powerball Drawing to Feature $255M Jackpot

The latest drawing of the popular American lottery game, Powerball took place on Monday and once again, the jackpot went unclaimed. The winning numbers were 24, 33, 35, 37, 42 for the white balls, and 21 for the red Powerball. With no correct guesses, the grand prize continues to grow.

The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was back in October, when a fortunate player from California secured a massive $1.76 billion grand prize by correctly guessing all the winning numbers. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, making the California winner incredibly lucky.

Since then, no one has been able to hit the jackpot, allowing the prize money to grow. The jackpot is expected to reach $255 million for the upcoming drawing on November 15, 2023. While this amount represents annual installment payments, the lump cash sum is estimated to be $117.1 million, making it a life-changing sum for the winner.

In the latest drawing, the majority of prizes were for the lowest-tier. Almost 200,000 people correctly guessed the red Powerball and secured a $4 prize each, with over 68,000 winning an $8 Power Play prize. There were also smaller prizes for guessing one white ball and the red Powerball.

However, there were also some big winners from the drawing. One lucky player correctly guessed all five white balls, winning a $1 million prize. Additionally, seven players won a $50,000 prize for correctly guessing four white balls and the red Powerball, while five winners secured a $100,000 Power Play prize.

In other lottery news, a man from Albuquerque recently won a staggering $3.52 million jackpot from the Lotto America drawing on November 4, 2023. The lucky winner had the option to use randomly generated numbers but chose to pick his own, using them for Lotto America, Powerball, and Mega Millions tickets.
