No Powerball Winner as Jackpot Hits $835 Million

The Powerball jackpot climbed to an estimated $835 million after no one won the top prize in the Monday, Sept. 25, drawing. The winning numbers were 10, 12, 22, 36, 50, and the Powerball was 4.

This is the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot ever and the ninth-biggest U.S. jackpot ever. The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was on July 19, 2023, when a player in California won $1.08 billion.

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 10:59 p.m. ET. Tickets cost $2 each, and players can add the Power Play option for an extra $1. Power Play can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times.

To play Powerball, players must choose five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. Players can choose their own numbers or have the computer pick them for them.

If someone wins the Powerball jackpot, they can choose to receive their prize in 30 annual payments or a lump sum payment. The lump sum payment for the $835 million jackpot would be $390.4 million.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338. However, there are many other prizes that can be won, even if you don’t match all six numbers. For example, matching five white balls wins you a $1 million prize.

Here are some tips for playing Powerball:

  • Choose a variety of numbers, including odd and even numbers, high and low numbers.
  • Avoid playing consecutive numbers or numbers that are all in the same number group.
  • Consider joining a lottery pool with friends or family to increase your chances of winning.
  • Set a budget for how much you will spend on lottery tickets each week or month.
  • Remember that the lottery is a form of gambling, and there is no guarantee of winning.

If you are lucky enough to win the Powerball jackpot, be sure to consult with a financial advisor to help you manage your new wealth.
