Powerball Jackpot Soars to 2nd Biggest Ever
The Powerball jackpot has soared to the second biggest jackpot in U.S. history.
There have now been 35 consecutive drawings without a top prize winner.
Wednesday night's jackpot is now an estimated $1.73 billion.
The winning numbers in Monday's drawing were 16, 34, 46, 55, 67 and a red Powerball 14.
According to lottery officials, Wednesday’s estimated jackpot ranks as the second-largest jackpot in U.S history, only behind the world record $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot won in California on November 7, 2022.
A single winning ticket for the $1.73 billion dollar prize is worth an estimated cash payout of $756.6 million.
Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
If you do beat the odds and win the Powerball top prize, experts say to keep your mouth shut and do this next.
