The previous grand prize ticket was won on 01/05/22 for a jackpot of $630 million. There were two winning tickets – one each to California and one to Wisconsin – which shared the prize.

The previous Powerball grand prize winner before this was on Saturday 06/05/21 for a jackpot of $286 million. This ticket was sold in Jacksonville, Florida at a Circle K convenience store. The previous Powerball grand prize winner was 3/27/21 for a draw worth $238 million.

Powerball at the start of 2020 had three jackpot winners in four draws. A ticket sold in Maryland hit the $731.1 million jackpot on Wednesday 1/20/21. The game reset to the $20 million minimum on Saturday 1/23/21, which was won, and then another jackpot was hit on 1/30/21.

Before the last four winners, the last winning Powerball ticket was sold on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 in Maryland for the $730 million jackpot. It was the fourth biggest jackpot in the history of the game. The previous winning ticket was resold on August 12, 2020 for a jackpot worth $169 million. This ticket was sold in Florida.

Normally, the game would reset to a minimum of $40 million, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced Powerball officials to halve the minimum jackpot, which started with the 11/4/20 jackpot.

The previous winning ticket was sold on June 10, 2020. The previous winning ticket sold was purchased in New Jersey for the 08/04/20 jackpot worth $190 million.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and one of the two biggest lottery jackpot games in the United States. Powerball jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay $1-2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can check tonight’s numbers, or all past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

There are nine ways to win money during Powerball. Just getting the Powerball with no other numbers wins $4, and even more if the power play is purchased for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for a ball plus the Powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the Powerball, or three correct numbers and no Powerball.

If all five numbered white balls are chosen but the red Powerball is incorrect, the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot resets to $20 million after a jackpot is won, and a line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information or to check potential past numbers.

On Saturday night we will post the payouts for the 4/30/22 Powerball draw and say if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if any.
