POWERBALL JACKPOT CLIMBS TO ESTIMATED $1.09 BILLION

The Powerball jackpot climbed to an estimated $1.09 billion after no one matched the game’s six numbers last night and won the top prize, continuing a three-month-long winless streak.

The numbers drawn were: 19, 24, 40, 42, 56, and the Powerball 23.

No one has won Powerball’s jackpot since New Year’s Day

The $1.09 billion prize is for a sole winner who makes the rare decision to be paid over 30 years through an annuity. Nearly all winners instead take the cash option, which for Wednesday night (April 3, 2024) would be an estimated $527.3 million.
