Monday’s Powerball Jackpot Now Estimated to be $625 Million; Projected Jackpot Would Be Eighth-Largest Powerball Jackpot on Record


Concord, NH – The Powerball jackpot continues to grow as the New Hampshire Lottery projects tonight’s (10/24) Powerball jackpot will increase to $625 million, which would make it the eighth-largest Powerball jackpot in history. The one-time cash payout is expected to reach $299.8 million. Saturday night’s (10/22) drawing marked the 35th consecutive Powerball drawing without a winner. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.) 

Three lucky players purchased $50,000 winning Powerball tickets for the drawing on Saturday (10/22). The winning tickets were purchased at Market Basket on Market Place Boulevard in Rochester, Sunoco on Hall Farm Road in Atkinson, and the NH Liquor & Wine Outlet on High Street in Somersworth. The three $50,000 winners come after two players purchased $50,000 winning tickets for the drawing last Wednesday (10/19). One player purchased a winning ticket at Alltown Market on Second Street in Manchester and a second player purchased a winning ticket at Market Basket on Garden Lane in Londonderry. 

“Now with what would be one of the top-10 largest Powerball jackpots in history and with five $50,000 Powerball winners in the last two drawings, could a jackpot winner here in New Hampshire be next?” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “Players are jumping at this opportunity to become New Hampshire’s next multi-millionaire and we anticipate steady ticket sales right up until the drawing tonight. Good luck to our players, and we are hoping to have a $625 million Granite State winner come tonight!”
