$557M Powerball Jackpot Winners Unveiled

The winning numbers for the $557,100,000 Powerball jackpot drawn on Wednesday night were 68, 17, 24, 62, and 48, with a Powerball number of 23.

It is noteworthy that there has not been a Powerball jackpot winner since April 19, 2023, when a ticket sold in Ohio won a $252 million prize. Since then, there have been 32 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner.

In the most recent drawing on Monday, July 3, a ticket sold in New Jersey matched all five white balls, winning a $1 million prize. Additionally, there were 16 tickets that matched four of the five white balls and the red Powerball, with 13 of them winning $50,000 prizes.

The Mega Millions jackpot has surged to an estimated $427 million (with a cash option of $220.6 million) for the upcoming drawing on Friday, July 7.

In the July 4 drawing, no ticket managed to match all six numbers, which were 21, 33, 54, 61, and 67 for the white balls, and 12 for the gold Mega Ball.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been steadily increasing since it was last won in New York on April 18. This marks the second consecutive July when the Mega Millions jackpot has reached such a substantial amount.
