No winner in Monday’s Powerball drawing. Jackpot reaches $1 billion
There was no winner in Monday's Powerball drawing, so the jackpot has now reached an estimated $1 billion.
The winning numbers for Monday were:
White balls: 5, 8, 9, 17, 41
The next drawing will be held on Wednesday, July 19 at 11:00 PM ET. If someone wins the jackpot, they will have the option to take a lump sum payment of $516.8 million or an annuity that pays out over 30 years.
The Powerball jackpot has been growing steadily for the past few months, and it is now the third-largest jackpot in Powerball history and the seventh-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.
The largest Powerball jackpot ever was $2.04 billion, which was won in California in January 2022.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, so it is still extremely unlikely that anyone will win the jackpot on Wednesday.
However, the odds of winning are much better for the smaller prizes, so there is still a chance to win some money if you play.
