$2 Million Powerball Winner in Knoxville

$2 Million Powerball Winner in Knoxville

Big money is on the line as the Powerball and Mega Million jackpots continue to grow without a lucky victor in sight.

The next drawing, which is scheduled for Tuesday (10/23) at 11pm, will have an estimated jackpot of $1.6 billion.

The Powerball jackpot will top $620 million this week because no one won Saturday's drawing, but that may seem relatively small compared to the $1.6 billion Mega Millions drawing expected on Tuesday.

One Powerball ticket sold in CT is now worth $1 million after Saturday's drawing. This is the largest jackpot in USA history, and will have a $905 million cash option.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.

The jackpot has been rolling every drawing since July 27, when it started at $40 million. The victor can also opt for a cash prize of more than $354 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later.




It costs $2 to play the game.

Estaban ended up plunking down $10 apiece on Mega Millions and Powerball tickets at Carlton Cards in Penn Station, which sells an average of $246,000 in tickets a week, the most in NY state, according to data obtained by USA Today.

If someone picks the winning six numbers, they can either claim the jackpot in 30 payments over 30 years - the so-called annuity option - or take a reduced amount in a lump sum.

There were a number of runner-up prizes.

The numbers were drawn for what was a $470 million dollar Powerball jackpot Saturday. There are smaller prizes, from $4 up to $1 million, for matching some, but not all, numbers. But because the player added the Power Play for an extra $1, the prize is $2 million.
