Powerball july 30 2021

A single ticket sold in Maryland matched all six numbers in the Wednesday night Powerball® drawing to win the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. Based on final ticket sales, the jackpot climbed to an estimated $731.1 million at the time of the drawing with a cash option of $546.8 million.

The lucky ticket holder will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $731.1 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $546.8 million. Both prize options are before taxes.

The winning numbers in the Wednesday, January 20 drawing were white balls 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, plus Powerball 22, and Power Play multiplier 3X.

Participating lotteries are reminding players to check their tickets for one of the nine ways to win. In Wednesday’s drawing alone, more than 4.4 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $2 million.

12 tickets matched all five white balls but missed matching the red Powerball in Wednesday’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in California (2), Georgia (2), Illinois (2), Maine, Michigan, New Jersey (3) and Oregon. One other ticket, sold in Maryland, matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million, because the ticket included the Power Play® option for an additional $1.

Wednesday’s drawing was the 36th drawing in the jackpot run that started back on Sept. 19, 2020. The jackpot win in Maryland capped what has been has been the longest jackpot run in Powerball history.

For the next drawing on Saturday, Jan. 23, the Powerball jackpot resets to $20 million ($15 million cash value). The 10X multiplier will be in play as part of the Power Play® option since the advertised jackpot is under $150 million.

Power Play

Ask for Power Play® with your Powerball purchase!

For an additional $1 per play, the Power Play feature can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times!

The multiplier number is randomly selected just before each drawing.

The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less.

The Match 5 prize with Power Play is always $2 million.

Multi-Draw

Play the same set of numbers in multiple drawings!

Select the number of consecutive drawings you want to play in the Multi-Draw or Advance Play section of your play slip or tell the retailer how many drawings you wish to play.

The number of Multi-Draws or Advance Plays available for purchase is dependent on the selling jurisdiction.

How TALL

A Powerball jackpot of $40 million may not seem like much, but ask yourself this – is $40 million really a small amount of money? Is the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. a small building?

If you were to stack $100 bills, take a look at the heights the money would reach at each estimated jackpot amount.
