CONCORD, N.H. – With no winner in this past Saturday’s drawing, the New Hampshire Powerball jackpot is expected to reach $430 million for Wednesday’s drawing, which would be the ninth largest jackpot in Powerball history. The New Hampshire Lottery is expecting the one-time cash payout to increase to $273.4 million for Wednesday’s drawing. (Estimated jackpot amounts are before taxes).
“At $430 million, this is already the third time this year the New Hampshire Powerball jackpot has exceeded $400 million—and the second time in the last two months,” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “When Powerball jackpots reach the $400 million threshold, the excitement really amps up and intensifies for our players and retailers. I can think of $430 million reasons to get your tickets now for Wednesday’s drawing—let’s have another big New Hampshire winner!”
With no winner in the Powerball drawing on Saturday, August 12, the Powerball jackpot has been growing since June 10, when a California player claimed a $447.8 million jackpot.
The Powerball drawing results from August 12 were: 20-24-26-35-49 PB-19 with a Power Play of 2.
New Hampshire has had 10 Powerball jackpot winners since Powerball launched in the Granite State 22 years ago.

The all-time record Powerball jackpot was a $1.6 billion jackpot from January 2016.
