The American Powerball jackpot that started rolling in late December has skyrocketed to a whopping $750 million for the Wednesday, March 27 drawing.
Wednesday’s advertised jackpot ranks as the fourth largest in U.S. lottery history behind the world record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016, the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in South Carolina last October, and the $758.7 million Powerball jackpot won in Massachusetts in August 2017.
As the American Powerball jackpot enters top-four territory, Lotteries.com reminds players to know their limits and bet responsibly.
The American Powerball jackpot was last hit in New York in the December 26 drawing. Since then, there have been 25 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner.
The winning numbers in the Saturday, March 23 drawing were white balls 24, 25, 52, 60, 66, plus Powerball 5.
