BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The POWERBALL jackpot has rolled 18 times, since the June 14, drawing, resulting in an estimated $430 million for Wednesday night’s drawing; the largest in the nation.
Wednesday night’s POWERBALL drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. ET, tickets must be purchased by 10 p.m. ET to be eligible for this drawing.
Players can purchase tickets at any of the more than 13,000 authorized Florida Lottery retailers across the state.
Even if players don’t win the jackpot, they still have the opportunity to win a variety of lower-tier prizes ranging from $4 to $2 million by matching any of the non-jackpot-winning combinations.
“The excitement is growing statewide and across the nation,” said Florida Lottery Secretary Jim Poppell.
“This POWERBALL jackpot is not only a life-changing opportunity for any person, but it has already generated more than $28 million to Florida students and schools.”
Jackpot prizes are paid in 30 annual installments or as a one-time, lump-sum payment. Winners have 180 days from the applicable drawing to claim their prize.
To receive the cash option of an estimated $273.4 million, jackpot prizes must be claimed within 60 days of the drawing.
Players should also check their tickets carefully; even if they don’t win the jackpot they can still win cash prizes of up $2 million.
The Florida Lottery would like to remind all players to play responsibly; it only takes one ticket to win. Like all Florida Lottery products, players must be 18 or older to play.
National POWERBALL drawings are broadcast live, in high-definition, from the Florida Lottery’s state of the art draw studio in Tallahassee. Florida Lottery game drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state.
