The jackpot currently stands at an estimated $1.55 billion. That’s an estimated cash value of $679.8 million (before taxes.) It’s the third-largest jackpot in the Powerball game and fourth-largest ever among U.S. lottery jackpots, according to lottery officials.
The last time someone hit the BIG jackpot was July 19, when a ticket sold in California was worth $1.08 billion.
Tickets to play are just $2, but the overall odds of winning aren’t good! The odds of winning the jackpot are just 1 in 292.2 million. Good luck!
