Florida Lottery Powerball Draw Game

Florida Players: New Years Day Powerball Jackpot Up To Estimated $483 Million

The POWERBALL® jackpot that rolled for the last three months of 2021 will carry over into the New Year! The jackpot now stands at an estimated $483 million ($347.7 million cash value) for the Saturday, Jan. 1 drawing.

This will be Powerball’s first drawing on New Year’s Day in two years.

No ticket matched all six numbers drawn in last Wednesday’s drawing – the final Powerball drawing of 2021. However, Wednesday’s drawing produced one winning Match 5 ticket worth $1 million in Georgia.

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.

That jackpot ranked as the 5th largest in Powerball history and the 7th largest in U.S. lottery history. Since then, there have been 37 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner.

In addition to the regularly scheduled Saturday drawing coinciding with New Year’s Day, Powerball will also hold a special $1 million drawing just after midnight EST on January 1 to cap off a national Powerball promotion called the POWERBALL First Millionaire of the Year®.

The drawing will be broadcast live on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2022” on ABC. The $1 million prize will be awarded to one of five finalists who entered the promotion through their local lottery.

It’s been a big year for Powerball. On August 23, 2021, Powerball launched a new Monday drawing, which expanded the weekly lineup of Powerball drawings to three nights a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

In addition, a new add-on feature called Double Play® was launched that gives players in select jurisdictions another chance to match their Powerball numbers in a separate drawing with a top cash prize of $10 million.

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.
