Powerball is one of the most popular lotteries in the United States, offering enormous jackpots that regularly run into the hundreds of millions of dollars. The jackpot starts at $40 million and there is no cap, meaning it continues to increase until it is won. The $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot shared by three players in January 2016 is still the biggest jackpot prize ever won in a lottery anywhere in the world.
The Powerball lottery takes place every Wednesday and Saturday night. The winning numbers are drawn at 10:59pm EST at the headquarters of the Florida Lottery in Tallahassee. The draw is broadcast on television throughout the United States and the winning numbers published on our Numbers page straight away.
