“Powerball Jackpot Reaches Staggering $900 Million as No Winner Claims the Prize

The Powerball jackpot has reached an impressive estimated sum of $900 million, following the absence of a winning ticket for the estimated $875 million prize on Saturday, as reported by CNN. The drawn numbers for that event were 2, 9, 43, 55, 57, and the Powerball number was 18.

While the grand jackpot remained elusive, there were still some fortunate participants. In Colorado and Texas, three tickets were sold, each winning $1 million on Saturday, as stated by CNN. Looking ahead to the next drawing on Monday, Powerball disclosed that the estimated jackpot would be a staggering $465.1 million. This figure marks the third-largest prize in Powerball’s history and the seventh-largest lottery jackpot ever awarded in the United States.

As for the lucky winner on Monday, Powerball presented them with a choice. They could opt for a substantial annuity of approximately $900 million spread over time, or they could go for a one-time lump sum payment of $465.1 million before taxes.

Remarkably, since the drawing that took place on April 19, no one has managed to secure the Powerball jackpot. This accumulation of prizes has led to the current record-breaking amount, captivating the nation’s attention and excitement.
