Powerball Lottery Jackpot Worth $1.9 Billion Sets World Record

1 year ago

Powerball not only set a new lottery jackpot record last night, but it also broke the old record, putting the notion of a $2 billion lottery jackpot within reach.

The $1.9 billion annuity jackpot is accompanied by a cash value of $929.1 million — nearly a billion dollars in cash! This makes it the second-highest cash value in history.

The jackpot has grown to this size since it began on Aug. 6 as a $20 million prize — now 40 consecutive drawings without a winner.

So, for all those lottery players who are dreaming of what will all the prize money look like in their bank account after federal and state tax deductions, you can simply get a tax analysis of the current Powerball jackpot by visiting The Lottery Lab's Tax Calculator page. Also, the rush of ticket sales over these few days is likely to surge the jackpot to an even higher amount!

The winning numbers for  Saturday, November 5, 2022, were 28, 45, 53, 56, and 69, with Mega Ball number 20. The Power Play number was 3. Also, the Powerball Double Play drawing results were 4, 23, 27, 31, and 56, with Powerball number 15.
