Tonight’s Powerball lottery drawing has an estimated jackpot of $747 million ($403.1 million cash value). Back in October and November, lottery fever took over MoCo when Powerball’s jackpot reached a record-setting $2.04 billion and became the largest prize in lottery history. Last month, the Mega Millions jackpot reached $1.1 billion. Both Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots build after each drawing where no ticket is matched.

If a player wins Monday’s jackpot, it will rank as the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot and the ninth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot. The Powerball jackpot rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Saturday night – white balls 2, 8, 15, 19, 58 and Powerball 10.

The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in Florida, New Jersey, Oregon and Pennsylvania. Nationwide, the drawing produced 64 winning tickets worth $50,000 and 17 winning tickets worth $100,000. Altogether, more than 2 million tickets won cash prizes totaling $20 million in Saturday’s drawing. The Powerball jackpot was last hit on November 19, 2022, by a single ticket in Kansas that won a grand prize worth $92.9 million. This Monday’s drawing will be 34th drawing in the jackpot run.
