Wednesday night’s 1/25/23 Powerball jackpot is worth $526 million, with a cash value option worth $284.0 million. The total jackpot could increase depending on the number of tickets sold nationwide before the draw.

There was no grand prize winner on Monday, but there was a ticket sold in Virginia that matched the first five white balls, minus the red Powerball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million. If they had bought the Power Play for $1 more, their second prize would have been worth $2 million.
The last Powerball jackpot was won in Kansas on November 19, 2022, for a draw of $93 million. The previous winner before that was in California on November 7, 2022 for a grand prize of $2.04 billion. It was the biggest lottery jackpot in history.
The last grand prize winner before the November 7 draw was 8/3/22 for a jackpot of $202 million. This ticket was sold in Pennsylvania. The previous winner before that was 6/29/22 for a ticket sold in Vermont. The previous winner before that was 4/27/22 for a $473 million jackpot with a single ticket sold in Arizona. The last grand prize ticket before that was sold on 2/14/22 for a jackpot of $183 million. This ticket was purchased in Connecticut.
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.

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 was reset to the minimum of $20 million on Saturday 01/23/21, which was won, and then another jackpot was hit on 01/30/21.
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 has 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 4/8/20 jackpot worth $190 million. The previous grand prize previously won was $70 million in the 12/2/20 draw with a ticket purchased in Michigan. The grand prize winner prior to this was 01/29/20. This ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Bonita Springs, Florida for the grand prize of $394 million, which had a cash option of $274.6 million.
The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the size of the jackpot, according to the Powerball website.
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 Wednesday night we will post the payouts for the 1/25/23 Powerball draw and say if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if any.
