Florida Lottery Powerball Draw Game

Powerball Fever Sets In As Jackpot Rolls To $800 Million For Saturday Drawing

There is no lucky ticket holder in Wednesday’s huge Powerball drawing, and the jackpot has grown to an estimated $800 million, game officials said.

There is no lucky ticket holder in Wednesday’s huge Powerball drawing, and the jackpot has grown to an estimated $800 million, game officials said.

The jackpot was around $700 million going into Wednesday night’s drawing, but no one matched all five numbers of 19-36-37-46-56, as well as the Powerball, 24, according to the Powerball.

The next drawing is Saturday, when the jackpot is estimated to be $800 million — the second highest in the history of the game, according to Powerball officials.

The largest ever was the $1.586 billion jackpot won in 2016.

“The jackpot ranks as the 2nd largest in Powerball history, only behind the world record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot, and 5th largest in U.S. lottery history,” said lottery officials.

“If a player wins Saturday’s jackpot, it will be the sixth time the Powerball jackpot has been hit this year,” officials said.

Previous jackpots won in 2022 include a $632.6 million jackpot hit on January 5 and split by winners in California and Wisconsin; a $185.3 million jackpot won on February 14 in Connecticut; a $473.1 million jackpot won on April 27 in Arizona; a $366.7 million jackpot won on June 29 in Vermont, and a $206.9 million jackpot won on August 3 in Pennsylvania,” officials said.

Powerball jackpots start at $20 million and roll until the jackpot is won. Players win by matching the five white ball numbers (1-69) and the Power Ball number (1-26).

The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately 1-in-24.87. 

Players can purchase tickets at any of the more than 13,000 Lottery retailers across the state for the chance to become Florida’s newest multi-millionaire.

Players are reminded to sign the back of their tickets at the time of purchase and keep them in a safe place.
