  • Mega Millions lottery drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays

There were no winners in the drawing on Wednesday night, so the next drawing will be Saturday.

At $625 million, the current Powerball jackpot is the fourth-largest Powerball prize in history. He hit the $298.3 million jackpot on December 26.

"With yet another roll of Powerball, the jackpot is reaching historic levels", said Wisconsin Lottery Director Cindy Polzin. The record $1.586 billion prize was won in 2016 across three states: California, Florida and Tennessee. Two other tickets, both from SC, matched all five white balls and utilized the Power Play option, doubling the winnings to $2 million.

The Powerball jackpot was last won by David Johnson, a 56-year-old supermarket worker from Brooklyn, New York.

The jackpot has reached such a live level due to 24 drawings without a victor. No victor was selected Wednesday, helping to boost the Powerball jackpot to $638.8 million.
