Powerball jackpots mean big numbers
The odds of winning Powerball and claiming such a lucrative prize are 1 in 292,201,338. The nine-figure jackpot is estimated to carry a $271.7 million cash value. Tonight’s drawing will be the 16th largest Powerball jackpot on record, according to the Charlotte Observer.
In January, Brooklyn, New York native David Johnson, claimed the $298.3 million jackpot, the closest such prize to date.
On October 23, the $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing was the second-largest drawing of all time. A winner in South Carolina finally came forward this month to claim the single largest jackpot win in history. That anonymous customer opted for the cash option valued at $878 million.
