Powerball drawing 10/2/23: Largest jackpot of 2023 up for grabs Wednesday night

NEW YORK (WABC) – You didn’t win $1.04 billion, we didn’t win $1.04 billion. That just means the Powerball jackpot gets bigger.

No one won big in Monday night’s drawing, so the jackpot has climbed to $1.2 billion ahead of Wednesday night’s drawing.

Monday’s numbers were: 27-12-43-47-26 Powerball: 5

Watch Powerball drawings every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. ET right here!

One lucky ticket buyer in New York did become $2 million richer on Monday night.

Wednesday’s jackpot ranks as the game’s largest this year and is among the largest lottery prizes of all time, behind earlier prizes in the Powerball and Mega Millions games.

If a player wins the jackpot on Wednesday night, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $1.2 billion or a lump sum payment estimated at $551.7 million.

Jackpot winners can either take the money as an immediate cash lump sum or in 30 annual payments over 29 years. Both advertised prize options do not include federal and jurisdictional taxes.

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over 33 consecutive times since the July 19 drawing when a ticket in California won a prize worth $1.08 billion, the third-largest Powerball jackpot ever won.

The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

All winning tickets must be redeemed in the jurisdiction in which they are sold.

Here is a look at the 10 largest U.S. jackpots that have been won and the states where the winning tickets were sold:
