Powerball Jackpot Rises To $825 Million Unclaimed

The second-largest Powerball jackpot in history has increased to $825 million, according to lottery officials on Friday.

The Powerball jackpot is the fifth-largest in U.S. history, but no one has hit all six numbers since August 3.

The cash option for the drawing that will take place on Saturday, October 29 is currently worth $410.2 million.

The jackpot was original $800 million, but strong ticket sales led to an increase a day before the drawing.

The Powerball drawing is scheduled for Wednesday at 10:59 p.m., and tickets can be purchased in Michigan until 9:45 p.m. that night.

The Wolverine FLL lottery club was the last Michigan player to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot, claiming a $1.05 billion jackpot in March 2021.

While they were lucky winners, players should check their tickets right away because a winner worth $1 million sold in Warren last year went unclaimed.

You can play Powerball in 45 different states, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Five Powerball jackpots have already been won this year. Last August. Vermont player won $206.9 million.
