DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — After 40 drawings without a big Powerball winner, maybe Monday night’s 41st attempt will be different.
Thanks to nearly four months of futility, the Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $670 million, making it the eighth largest in U.S. lottery history. No one has won the game’s grand prize since June 5.
Every drawing now sets a record, topping the previous mark of 36 drawings that ended in January 2021. The longer the game goes without a grand prize winner, the larger the payout will grow.
