No winner in Monday’s Powerball drawing

No winner in Monday’s Powerball drawing

Powerball jackpot rose to an estimated $1 billion after no winning ticket was sold for the latest drawing.

The new jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing would be the seventh highest in U.S. history and the third largest for Powerball 

The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was April 19 for a top prize of nearly $253 million. Since then, no one has won the grand prize in the past 38 consecutive drawings. The jackpot will keep growing until someone wins. 

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