Powerball: Winning numbers drawn for $900M jackpot

Written by on July 18, 2023

It has been three months since the Powerball jackpot was hit, but that could all change following Monday’s drawing.

If a ticket (or tickets) matches the winning numbers below, the jackpot could be the third-largest grand prize in Powerball’s history, and one of the largest lottery prizes in U.S. history.

The numbers drawn Monday were: 5, 8, 9, 17, and 41, and red Powerball 21. The Power Play multiplier was 4X.

Ahead of the drawing, officials estimated the jackpot to be $900 million, with a cash value of $465.1 million. By the time the drawing was held, officials estimated the jackpot at $922 million.

Should the jackpot roll again after Monday’s drawing, the prize could grow to eclipse $1 billion. It would need to surpass $1.05 billion to become the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

If you’re lucky enough to win, you’ll have two options to collect your prize: as an annuity, where you receive an immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year, or the lump sum payment. 

You have a 1 in 292.2 million chance of matching all six winning numbers for the top prize. If you miss the top prize, you always have a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning one of the nine total prizes available during Powerball.
