$900 million Powerball jackpot is one of the largest ever

How does $900 million sound to you?

That's exactly what's up for grabs in Monday night's Powerball drawing, which has grown to the third-largest jackpot in the game's history after no one won the top prize Saturday.

The winning numbers were 2, 9, 43, 55, and 57. The Powerball was 18. The Power Play multiplier was 2. 

The lucky winner, if there is one Monday night, will have the option to collect their winnings in annual installments or the lump sum of $465.1 million.


The largest ever Powerball jackpot ever was won in 2022 in California at $2.04 billion. The second-largest Powerball was won in California, Tennessee and Florida at $1.586 billion. 

The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been hit since mid-April when a ticket sold in Ohio matched the winning numbers for a $252.6 million prize.

Powerball tickets cost $2 per play and are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The deadline for purchasing a ticket is 9:45 p.m. on draw nights.

It seems like there's some serious lottery fever going around, because no one won the top prize in the Mega Millions drawing either.

Right now the Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday's drawing is an estimated $640 million.
