Powerball Mania goes back a billion dollars


You can’t win if you don’t play. But a lot of people play and don’t win, leading to an estimated $1 billion jackpot for Monday night’s draw.

No one matched all six numbers on Saturday night when the jackpot was $825 million. This creates an opportunity for someone to win the second-biggest jackpot in US history, according to KIMT, which claims the biggest winner ever was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticket holders in 2016.

Although no one won the Saturday night draw, several people approached. KIMT says a Florida ticket holder matched all five white balls in Saturday’s draw and increased the prize to $2 million by including the game’s “Power Play” feature. Six tickets won a prize of a million dollars by matching five white balls, including two in California, two in Michigan, one in Maryland and one in Texas.

There were also seventeen winners of $100,000 each and 80 winners of $50,000.

10 Biggest Winners in Iowa Lottery History

The people of Iowa have had enough luck with the various Iowa Lottery games recently, including earlier this month when a Mapleton man won $1 million, a boost well needed after a year of struggle for Darryl Ingram, a farmer who had faced a heart attack and an additional health scare in 2022.

The last time the world played for this kind of money was last July during the Mega Millions. A ticket to Illinois brought in $1.337 billion, which CNN said was only the second-biggest ever in that game.

Meanwhile, it’s been almost six months since anyone hit all six numbers in the Powerball draw, but this Monday night could definitely change someone’s luck. I hope it’s you!
