Jackpot soars to $900M for Monday’s drawing

The Powerball jackpot has grown to an estimated $900 million for the next drawing on Monday,

The Powerball jackpot rolled Saturday night after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn.

The numbers were: 57, 43, 02, 55, 09, Powerball: 18

The Power Play multiplier was 2X.

Even though no one hit the big prize in the Saturday, July 15 drawing, three tickets sold in Colorado and Texas (2) matched all five white balls to win $1 million prizes. There were also 89 tickets that matched four of the five white balls and red Powerball. Seventy-five of the tickets won $50,000 prizes. The other fourteen tickets included the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play and increased the $50,000 prize to $100,000.

The $900M Powerball jackpot has an estimated cash value of $465.1 million. The jackpot currently ranks as the third largest Powerball jackpot and the seventh largest U.S. lottery jackpot.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in the April 19, 2023 drawing, when a ticket in Ohio matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a grand prize worth $252.6 million.

Your next shot at the Powerball jackpot is Monday night.

Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to an estimated $640 million ($328.0 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, July 18.
