If you forgot to buy your Powerball jackpot ticket for the New Year’s Day drawing, you’re in luck. No winner was drawn on Saturday night.
Now, the Powerball jackpot continues to climb on Sunday from $500 million to $522 million (4371.5 million cash value).
Despite no jackpot winner, some people still managed to walk away with some cash from Saturday night’s drawing.
Powerball officials said more than 2.7 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $2 million.
The next drawing for the Powerball will be Monday, Jan. 3 at 9:59 p.m.
The last winner of the Powerball jackpot was in California on Oct. 4, 2021, when a single ticket won $699.8 million. This was the fifth-largest in Powerball history and the 7th largest in U.S. lottery history, according to Powerball officials.
If you win the Powerball drawing, you can choose to receive your prize as an annuity, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump-sum payment, according to officials.
Still, both of the prize options are prior to federal and jurisdictional taxes.
