Powerball jackpot estimated at $625 million before Saturday drawing

Mega Millions lottery drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays

Powerball: 5. Power Play: 3x. The lump sum payment before taxes would be about $380 million.

The Powerball jackpot was last won by David Johnson, a 56-year-old supermarket worker from Brooklyn, New York.

The current Powerball jackpot has rolled 24 times to reach its highest level in seven months since October's run reached $687.8 million. Twenty-four drawings since then have failed to produce a victor, including the drawing on Wednesday. However, where the $1 million victor was sold was not available as of 8:40 a.m.

Players win by correctly matching five numbers from a field of 69 - as well as the Powerball number, which players choose from 26 numbers.

The next PowerBall and PowerBall Plus draws are on Tuesday.

Since the Powerball jackpot started growing in December, it has skyrocketed to three-quarters of a billion dollars.

One local gas station says they are gearing up for lotto ticket sales.

The cash option for the jackpot is about $381 million. About $91.3 million of that would go to federal taxes. Lawson's jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in MI. No one won tonight's Powerball. Last is your shot at $4, which you could use to buy two more Powerball tickets if you wanted. The 55-year-old father of two said he worked as an accountant for a food importing company, but quit his job after learning he hit the jackpot. That was the nation's second-largest lottery prize ever. That was because the Powerball jackpot was worth a staggering $638 million. The state's most recent jackpot victor came exactly two years ago when a Milwaukee resident won $156.2 million on March 22, 2017.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
