Powerball jackpot isn’t fooling around – it’s no April Fools’ Day joke, but a genuine chance to win a life-altering fortune. For the first time in 2024, the Powerball jackpot has rocketed to a staggering $975 million, making it the fifth-largest in Powerball history and the biggest advertised prize so far in 2024! “This is an exciting time to play Powerball,” declared Drew Svitko, Powerball Product Group Chair and Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director.

Saturday, March 30 was the 37 consecutive drawing without a winner. This colossal sum is now the 11th-largest US lottery jackpot in history and the 5th-largest Powerball jackpot ever recorded. Four tickets snagged a cool $1 million each by matching the five white balls 12, 13, 33, 50, 52.  These worth $1,000,000 prize tickets were sold in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Louisiana, and Michigan.

Additionally, 55 tickets won $50,000 prizes and 11 tickets secured $150,000 prizes. The Double Play feature offered an additional chance to win to a Michigan Lottery player with five balls to snag a $500,000 prize.

The most recent Powerball jackpot was claimed on January 1, 2024, when a lucky ticket purchased in Michigan secured a staggering prize of $842.4 million. Since that remarkable win, 38 consecutive drawings have taken place without producing another jackpot winner. As we approach Monday’s drawing, it will mark the 39th drawing in this captivating jackpot run.

Powerball tickets priced at a mere $2 and accessible in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the opportunity to transform into a multi-millionaire is tantalizingly close.
