BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The POWERBALL jackpot continues to climb to an estimated $403 million for Wednesday night’s drawing – the largest in the nation.
The next POWERBALL drawing will be held Wednesday, February 22, at 10:59 p.m. ET, tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m. ET to be eligible for this drawing. Purchase your tickets at any of the more than 13,000 authorized Lottery retailers for your chance to become Florida’s newest multi-millionaire.
Florida Lottery game drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state.
In addition to the large POWERBALL jackpot prize, players have the opportunity to win lower-tier prizes from $4 to $2 million by matching any of the non-jackpot-winning combinations.
The POWERBALL jackpot has rolled 18 times since the December 21, 2016, drawing and those sales have generated more than $31 million in contributions to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).
“This week marks $31 billion in total Florida Lottery transfers to education,” said Secretary Tom Delacenserie. “Rising sales from this POWERBALL jackpot play a direct role in the Lottery’s ability to fund education for Florida’s students.”
Jackpot prizes are paid in 30 annual installments or as a one-time, lump-sum payment. Jackpot prizes must be claimed within 60 days after the draw to receive the cash option of an estimated $189.3 million.
Winners have 180 days from the applicable drawing to claim their prize.
