Powerball Players – Your chance to win Who Wants To Be A Billionaire goes one round further.
No winning tickets were sold for Wednesday’s $1.2 billion jackpot drawing. The winning numbers were 2-11-22-35-60 and the Powerball was 23.
An estimated $1.5 billion is the new jackpot for the next drawing on Saturday.
If a ticket wins and the holder chooses a lump-sum option, the ticket would net an estimated $745.9 million in a one-off payment, according to a statement from Powerball Thursday morning. An annuity option would spread 30 payments over 29 years.
Since August, there have been 39 consecutive Powerball draws without a winner, making the jackpot one of the largest in US history.
The record is a $1.586 billion Powerball grand prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016, according to Powerball.
In July, a $1.337 billion one-ticket Mega Millions jackpot was won in Illinois. In 2019, a $1.537 billion Mega Millions prize was claimed in South Carolina.
