Powerball’s world record jackpot run is not over yet. The Powerball jackpot now stands at an estimated annuity value of $1.9 billion, or $929.1 million cash, for the next drawing tonight, November 7.
“The anticipation is certainly building as this historic jackpot keeps growing,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “In Pennsylvania, we urge our winners to first sign their winning ticket, then especially for big jackpots like this one, contact a financial advisor and contact Lottery headquarters to learn how to file your claim.”
Tonight’s drawing will be the 41st Powerball® drawing since the jackpot was last won on August 3 in Pennsylvania. The jackpot run has tied the game record for the number of consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner. The only other Powerball jackpot run to reach 41 consecutive drawings ended on Oct. 4, 2021, with a $699.8 million winner in California.
In Pennsylvania, this recent jackpot run has generated more than $143 million in sales, creating a profit of more than $57 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians. As of Monday afternoon, in Pennsylvania, Powerball tickets were selling at the rate of an estimated $22,500 each minute with more than 10,600 tickets being sold per minute.
“In Pennsylvania, players have the option to purchase Powerball tickets online or by visiting one of our nearly 10,000 retailers,” added Svitko. “However you decided to buy your tickets, we’d like to issue a friendly reminder that players must be 18 or older and ask them to please play responsibly.”

If there is no Powerball® winner in Monday’s drawing, the jackpot for the Wednesday, November 9 drawing will be an estimated $2.3 billion, or $1.1 billion cash.
