Powerball Jackpot Climbs to Over Half a Billion Dollars


Concord, NH – The Powerball jackpot continues to rise as the New Hampshire Lottery expects Wednesday night’s (10/19) Powerball jackpot will grow to $508 million, which would make it the 2nd-largest Powerball jackpot this year. The New Hampshire Lottery expects the one-time cash payout to increase to $256.3 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.) 

“With over $850,000 in Powerball sales last week alone, we know the excitement is quickly building among our players, who now have a chance to win over half a billion dollars,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “With tickets available at over 1,200 retailer locations statewide and online via NH iLottery, it could not be easier to play, so get your tickets now ahead of tonight’s drawing! Here’s hoping New Hampshire mints our newest multi-millionaire tonight! 

Powerball drawing results from Monday, October 17, were: 19-30-36-46-60 PB-25 with a Powerball play of 3. 

The $508 million Powerball jackpot has been growing since August 3, when a lucky Pennsylvania player purchased a $206.9 million jackpot winning ticket. Monday night’s (10/17) drawing marked the 32rd consecutive Powerball draw without a winner. 

The Powerball jackpot reached $1.586 million in January 2016, marking not only the largest Powerball jackpot on record but also the largest lottery jackpot in history. The jackpot was split between three winners in Florida, California and Tennessee. 

Powerball drawings are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 PM. 

Tickets are on sale at more than 1,200 retailers statewide, and online at NH iLottery. For more information and to play, visit www.nhlottery.com.
