MO — ST. JOSEPH After no winning ticket was sold for the most recent drawing, the Powerball jackpot increased once again to an estimated $1 billion.

A single ticket did not match the white balls 5, 8, 9, 17, 41, and red Powerball 2 in the drawing on Monday. The projected prize value was $900 million.

The new prize for Wednesday’s drawing would rank third in all of American history and it will continue to increase until a winner is found. A $516.8 million lump sum payment before taxes or $1 billion paid out in year installments is the prize available to ticket holders.

Three people won $2 million after matching all five numbers plus the Power Play, lottery officials said. The winning tickets were sold in Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas.

Five persons who correctly matched all five numbers each earned $1 million. The winning tickets were bought in Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, Kentucky, Connecticut, and Florida.

The game’s pitifully low chances of 1 in 292.2 million are intended to provide large jackpots that entice additional players. Last November’s $2.04 billion Powerball prize was the greatest ever.

The most recent Powerball jackpot winner received a top reward of roughly $253 million on April 19. Since then, there have been 38 consecutive lotteries without a top prize winner.

Lottery players can test their odds with Mega Millions before the upcoming Powerball drawing. The anticipated jackpot for Tuesday is $640 million, or $328 million in cash prior to taxes in one big amount.

Along with Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Powerball is played in 45 states.
