Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $1.55 Billion for Tonight’s Drawing

$517,000 Mississippi Match 5 jackpot hit Friday

JACKSON, MISS. – The billion-dollar Powerball® jackpot is still waiting to be won, after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Saturday night – white balls 47, 54, 57, 60, 65 and red Powerball 19. The Power Play® multiplier was 3.

The Powerball jackpot now stands at an estimated $1.55 billion for the drawing tonight with an estimated cash value of $679.8 million. 

Monday’s estimated jackpot ranks as the third largest in the Powerball game and fourth largest among U.S. lottery jackpots. Tonight’s drawing will be the 35th drawing in the jackpot run, and the first time in Powerball history back-to-back jackpot cycles have generated billion-dollar grand prizes. The Powerball jackpot was previously won on July 19, when a ticket in California won a jackpot worth $1.08 billion.

Big Wins

While Powerball continues to roll, both jackpots for Mississippi Match 5 and Mega Millions® were hit in the Friday, Oct. 6, drawings.

One Match 5 player matched all five numbers in the Friday drawing winning an estimated $517,000. The ticket was purchased from Toomsuba Texaco in Toomsuba. The winning numbers from that drawing were 11-24-25-29-31. Additionally, one winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in Texas. The player matched all numbers plus the Mega Ball for an estimated win of $360 million.

The jackpot for the Tuesday, Oct. 10, Mega Millions drawing has been reset to an estimated $20 million; while the Match 5 jackpot tonight is an estimated $54,000.
