Published 2:08 pm Friday, July 14, 2023

JACKSON – The Powerball® jackpot has climbed to an estimated $875 million with an estimated cash value of $441.9 for the drawing Saturday, July 15. The jackpot rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Wednesday night: 23-35-45-66-67 and Powerball of 20.

If a player wins Saturday’s jackpot, it will be the third-largest jackpot in Powerball history, behind the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot from January 2016 and the record-holding $2.04 billion from November 2022.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in the April 19 drawing for a win of $252.6 million in Ohio. Saturday’s drawing will be the 37th in the jackpot run. The longest Powerball jackpot run has been 41 drawings.
