  • Feeling Lucky? Powerball Jackpot Reaching Historic Heights

The Powerball jackpot is going up once again.

While there was no grand prize victor, four players matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million.

The largest Powerball jackpot of all time is $1.586 billion. After all, there were three winning tickets sold in the largest Powerball jackpot ever won - $1.586 billion, drawn on January 13, 2016, with winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.

Yet another Powerball drawing was held Wednesday without anyone hitting the jackpot.

The odds of picking the winning numbers to receive Powerball's grand prize are a lot to one.

The estimated jackpot is $380.6 million.

North Carolina has had four Powerball jackpot winners of $74.5 million to $188 million.

The Powerball lottery jackpot continues to climb higher.

Winning numbers are drawn from white balls between 1 and 69 and a Powerball numbered from 1 to 26.

This jackpot is tied for the 10th largest Powerball prize ever - and the biggest since that similar $435 million prize in February was won by a man in Indiana. Players may select their own numbers or let the terminal make the selection for them via a Quick Pick (QP) ticket.

theLotter.com has helped people win $80 million since 2002: late 2015 an Iraqi client won the $6.4 million jackpot in Oregon.

A single winning ticket with the cash prize option would be worth $273.1 million. There were three match five winners who won $1 million.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.
