Powerball winning numbers: Jackpot up to $546M for Wednesday’s drawing

The Powerball jackpot has risen to $546M for Wednesday’s drawing, while Mega Millions is also closing on the half-billion dollar mark.

No one has hit Powerball since April 19, 2023, when a ticket in Ohio scored a $252M jackpot.

Since then, there have been 32 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner.

Monday’s winning numbers: 31, 38, 15, 61, 26, and a Powerball of 3

The top-winning ticket in the Monday, July 3 drawing was a ticket sold in New Jersey that matched all five white balls to win a $1 million prize. Other top-winning tickets include 16 tickets that matched four of the five white balls and the red Powerball. Thirteen of those tickets won $50,000 prizes.

Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to an estimated $427 million ($220.6 million cash) for the next drawing on Friday, July 7!

No ticket matched all six numbers in the July 4 drawing: the white balls 21, 33, 54, 61 and 67, plus the gold Mega Ball 12.

The Mega jackpot has been growing since it was last won in New York on April 18, and it’s the second consecutive July that Mega Millions has reached this level.
