Powerball had three jackpot winners in four draws in early 2020. A ticket sold in Maryland hit the $731.1 million jackpot on Wednesday, January 20, 21. The game was reset to the $20 million minimum on Saturday, 1/23/21, which was won, and then another jackpot was won on 1/30/21.

Prior to the last four winners, the last winning Powerball ticket was sold on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 in Maryland for the $730 million jackpot. It was the fourth largest jackpot in the history of the game. The previous winning ticket was sold back on August 12, 2020 for a jackpot worth $169 million. That ticket was sold in Florida.

Normally the game would reset to a minimum of $40 million, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced Powerball officials to cut the minimum jackpot in half, which started with the 04/11/20 jackpot.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and one of America’s two largest lottery jackpot games. Powerball jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can view tonight’s numbers, or previous winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

There are nine ways to win money in Powerball. Just getting the Powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the powerplay is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout applies to one ball plus the Powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the Powerball, or three correct numbers and no Powerball.

If all five white numbered balls are chosen, but the red Powerball is incorrect, the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot resets to $20 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings by a Megaplier. Here’s the Mega Millions website for more information or to see possible past numbers.
