The $201 million Powerball jackpot from Monday night's 12/26/22 drawing included a $105.1 million cash-value option. Depending on how many tickets are sold around the nation prior to the drawing, the total prize might rise.
The $186 million jackpot was won last Saturday (12/24/22) with the following winning numbers: 17, 37, 46, 54, and 67, with a Powerball of 8. Power Play was three times.
On Christmas Eve, no tickets were sold that matched the first five white balls plus the red Powerball to win the game's second prize of $1 million. There was also no grand prize winner.
On November 19, 2022, Kansas claimed the last Powerball jackpot for a $93 million drawing. The previous winner before that took home a $2.04 billion big prize in California on November 7, 2022. The jackpot was the biggest in the history of lotteries.
Prior to the drawing on November 7, the most recent grand prize winner had won the $202 million jackpot on August 3, 22. It was purchased in Pennsylvania. The previous winner was a ticket purchased in Vermont on June 29, 222.
Prior to that, one single ticket sold in Arizona on 04/27/22 won a $473 million prize, making it the previous winner. Prior to that, a ticket for a $183 million jackpot was sold on February 14, 221. Connecticut is where I bought that ticket.
Before then, a $630 million jackpot was won on January 5, 22, by a grand prize ticket. One each from Wisconsin and California were the two winning tickets that shared the jackpot.
