Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $747 Million for Tonight’s Drawing

Powerball LogoNo one matched all six numbers to win Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot, giving Michigan Lottery players a chance at a $747 million jackpot tonight. The cash option for the jackpot is $403.1 million.

If a lucky player wins the $747 million jackpot, it will be the first Powerball jackpot won this year. If a player wins tonight’s jackpot, it will rank as the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot and ninth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot.

Tonight’s drawing will be the 34th drawing since the jackpot was last won Nov. 19. One ticket purchased in Kansas matched the five white balls and the Powerball to win a $93 million jackpot. The last Michigan player to win a Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis, of Waterford. Davis won the game’s $70 million jackpot on Feb. 12, 2020.

Players have plenty of time to purchase tickets for tonight’s drawing. Lottery retailers are selling Powerball tickets until 9:45 p.m. tonight. Tickets also may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com.

Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Powerball ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $10 million in the nightly Double Play drawing.

The Powerball drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerball.com. Powerball tickets are sold in 45 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
