The odds of winning the POWERBALL jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.
No one won Saturday night’s (December 30, 2017) POWERBALL jackpot, so the estimate for the Wednesday, January 3, 2018 jackpot rose to $440 million ($278.3 million cash value).
There was a power play winner in Oregon who matched 5 of 5 numbers for $2 million. There were also winners who matched 5 of 5 numbers to win $1 million in Iowa, New Hampshire, and New Jersey.
All POWERBALL prizes are set payouts, except the jackpot. The jackpot prize will be shared among winners in all POWERBALL states. The jackpot will be paid in 30 annual payments or a one-time cash payment of a reduced amount. If there is no jackpot winner, the money in the jackpot pool rolls over to the next POWERBALL drawing.
