Powerball jackpot climbs to $835 million
The Powerball jackpot has climbed to $835 million after Monday's drawing turned up with no big winner.
The $835 million prize would be the games second largest jackpot this year and the fourth largest in Powerball history.
The money could be claimed in one lump sum payment now plus annual payments that increase 5% each year for the next 29 years, or as a one-time cash payment of $390.4 million.
While nobody took home the big prize on Monday, three Florida and one Oregon residents do find themselves $1 million richer, with tickets that matched all five white balls in the drawing.
Besides the $1.08 billion jackpot drawn on July 19th of this year, the largest jackpots in Powerball history were a $2.04 billion payout on November 7, 2022 and a $1.586 billion payout on January 13, 2016 which was split three ways.
