Powerball jackpot reaches $747M as drawing nears

(CTN NEWS) – Players willing to risk $2 against the long odds of winning the big prize will have a chance to win a $747 million Powerball jackpot on Monday night.

There has not been a jackpot winner since November 19, 2022, allowing the prize to grow each week. As of now, it is the ninth-largest in American history.

Despite its abysmal odds, the game is designed to build big prizes that attract more players.

The strategy certainly worked recently, as someone won a $1.35 billion Mega Millions prize in January and a $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot last November. Both prizes have not been claimed.

A $747 million jackpot is available to winners who choose an annuity over 29 years. Compared to earlier jackpots, when interest rates were lower, those annuity payments increased.

Usually, winners prefer cash, which would be $403.1 million for Monday night’s drawing.

There are 45 states where lottery is played, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
