Winning $610 million dollars would be a heck of a way to start off 2022, especially if you prefer the cash payout, which is currently $434 million!

Well, you’ll have another shot at winning the Powerball lottery after no one could match all the necessary numbers on Monday.

The big payout on this Wednesday night’s drawing has now jumped to an estimated $610 million… definitely not chump change.

The last Powerball jackpot winner was on Oct. 4, worth $699.8 million in Morro Bay, California.

On January 13, 2016 the giant purse of $1.586 billion Powerball was matched by with three tickets – one from California, one from Florida, and one from Tennessee.

Powerball added a third weekly drawing in August to help grow the amounts of jackpots more quickly. It looks like that strategy worked.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as in Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
