“Whether it’s purchasing your Powerball® ticket in-store or on our website, it only takes one ticket to win a life-changing jackpot prize,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “As the jackpot continues to grow, our players are helping us generate funding for property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care services, prescription assistance, and local services including senior centers and meals. That’s important to keep in mind as we encourage our players to play responsibly.”
The Powerball® jackpot has been rolling for more than two months. The last time a jackpot was won in Pennsylvania was on August 3, 2022
. In Pennsylvania, this recent jackpot run generated more than $41.6 million in sales, creating a profit of more than $16.6 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians.
If there is no Powerball® winner in tonight’s drawing, the jackpot for the Saturday, October 22 drawing will be an estimated $550 million, or $277.5 million cash.
Pennsylvania Lottery players have options to purchase their Powerball® tickets online
or by visiting a retailer
. Players can find lottery-selling locations closest to them by visiting the Find a Retailer
section of the Lottery’s website.
