Powerball august 14 2021

The Powerball jackpot will roll into 2021 with an estimated Grand Prize of $384 million ($295.4 million cash value) for the January 2 drawing. This is the highest the Powerball jackpot has been since January 2020 when a $396.9 million jackpot was won in Florida.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in New York in the September 16 drawing. Since then, there have been 30 drawings in a row without a Grand Prize winner. Saturday’s drawing will be the 31st draw in the jackpot run.

While there were no $1 million or $2 million winners in the December 30 drawing, more than 1.1 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $100,000. The $100,000-winning tickets were sold in Arkansas and Pennsylvania. During the current jackpot run, there have been more than 18.1 million winning tickets across all prize tiers, including 19 tickets that have won $1 million and nine tickets that have won $2 million.

Feb. 12, 2020 – $70 million – Michigan

April 8, 2020 – $190 million – New Jersey
