Did anyone win Monday's $527 million Powerball jackpot?

The last time someone hit the Powerball jackpot was back in July, when one very lucky lottery player won $1.08 billion.

WASHINGTON, USA — More than half a billion dollars will be on the line for Wednesday's Powerball drawing after no one hit the jackpot on Monday night

Monday's drawing, worth an estimated $527 million, had a cash option of $254.9 million. 

For Wednesday's drawing, the top prize is up to $550 million and $266 million, respectively. 

But there was one lucky millionaire after the first drawing of the week. A single ticket in Michigan got all five of the white ball numbers correct, nabbing the third-largest prize possible in the drawing. 

The last time someone hit the Powerball jackpot was back in July, when one very lucky lottery player in California won $1.08 billion - which was the game's third largest prize in history. Since then, there have been 23 straight Powerball drawings without a grand prize winner. 

It's been a big summer for huge lottery prizes. Last month, a single winning ticket sold in Florida won the $1.58 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the largest in the game's history.

What were the winning Powerball numbers for September 11, 2023?

The winning numbers were 53-27-25-66-9, Powerball 5 and Power Play 2X . 

When is the Powerball drawing?

The Powerball drawing takes place live at 10:59 p.m. Eastern every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets, which cost $2 per play, are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

What are my chances of winning the Powerball?

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million.

Over the past few years, huge lottery jackpots have become more common as lottery officials have changed the rules and ticket prices to boost top prizes.

Powerball's biggest change came in 2021 when officials decided to add a Monday drawing to its weekly lineup of Wednesday and Saturday evening drawings. At the time of the announcement, Powerball proclaimed the addition of the Monday drawing would lead to "larger, faster-growing jackpots."
