The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was in July, when one very lucky lottery player won $1.08 billion.
WASHINGTON, United States – The Powerball jackpot has increased again to $596 million after Wednesday night drawing failed to find a grand prize winner.
If all five white balls and the Powerball match, the winner can choose to receive the full $550 million through the annuity option – the amount paid out over 29 years. However, winners often choose the cash option. For Wednesday’s drawing, that’s a total of $266 million.
One lucky player in South Carolina will take home $2 billion for matching all five white balls minus the Powerball, plus the Power Play multiplier. Another player in Missouri won $1 million.
The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was in July, when a very lucky lottery player in California won $1.08 billion, the third-largest prize in the game’s history. Since then, there have been 23 consecutive Powerball drawings without a winner.
It’s been a big summer for huge lottery prizes. Last month, a single winning ticket sold in Florida won the $1.58 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the largest prize in the game’s history.

Over the past few years, huge lottery jackpots have become more common as lottery officials changed the rules and ticket prices to increase the top prize.
Powerball’s biggest change came in 2021 when officials decided to add a Monday drawing to the list of weekly Wednesday and Saturday night drawings. At the time of announcement, Powerball claimed the addition of the Monday drawing would result in “larger, faster-growing jackpots.”
