$900 Million Jackpot Up for Grabs in Tonight’s Powerball Drawing

PowerballThe third-largest Powerball jackpot in history is up for grabs tonight, giving players a chance to win $900 million. The cash option for the jackpot is about $465 million.

If a player wins the $900 million jackpot, it would be the largest Powerball jackpot won this year. In February, a player in Washington won a $754.6 million jackpot.

Tonight’s drawing will be the 38th drawing since the Powerball jackpot was last won. The Powerball jackpot was won most recently in April, when one ticket purchased in Ohio matched the five white balls and the Powerball to win a $252.6 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 the drawing. Lottery retailers throughout the state are selling Powerball tickets until 9:45 p.m. Tickets also may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com.

Powerball drawings take place at 10:59 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerball.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.
