Powerball Tops $535 Million Entering Weekend

Posted August 19, 2017

The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery (ASL) says the $535 million jackpot marks the fifth largest Powerball prize up for grabs in game history.

Jackpot prizes are paid in 30 annual installments or as a one-time, lump-sum payment. A victor who took the cash option would snag $324.2 million, though that would be subject to state and federal taxes. The cash option is worth $340.1 million, but that total is likely to climb by the time the drawing takes place.

Eric Nosser, a salesman at the Subaru dealership where the SUV was stolen, said he saw the man but steered clear. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Amy Bastman of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The jackpot is also Powerball's largest since the run-up to the world-record jackpot in early 2016.

Good luck winning the jackpot, though. Tickets are still on sale at participating retailers, including most local gas stations, rest stoops, grocery stores and online. Wednesday's numbers were 9-15-43-60-64.

The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million. Each Powerball play is $2.

Wednesday night, IL players won more than 88,500 prizes ranging from $4 to $150,000, even though there was no jackpot victor. The red Power Ball is drawn from a separate field of one through 26. A 10X multiplier will be available for the Match 4+1 prize and lower prize tiers when the jackpot is at or below $150 million, or when announced.
