After no one hit the Powerball jackpot Monday night, the jackpot has increased to an estimated $526 million, with an estimated cash value of $284 million. The next drawing is Wednesday.
A $150,000 winning ticket was purchased in Jackson, however. The winning player matched four of five white balls and the Powerball, and purchased the Power Play option for an additional dollar, tripling their winnings from $50,000 to $150,000.
The winning numbers were 12-31-47-58-60, with a Powerball of 23 and a Power Play number of 3.
A $500,000 Powerball ticket remains unclaimed. The ticket was purchased from the Broadway Mart in McComb on Aug. 13, 2022, and expires Feb. 9, 2023. The ticket was originally worth $100,00, but the player added the Power Play, multiplying the win by five. Only 17 days remain to claim to winnings.
