Estimated $700 Million to Be Up for Grabs in Saturday’s Powerball Drawing


Concord, NH – Without a winner in last night’s (2/1) drawing, the Powerball jackpot continues to rise. The New Hampshire Lottery is projecting Saturday night’s (2/4) Powerball jackpot will reach $700 million, which would be the sixth-largest Powerball jackpot in history. The New Hampshire Lottery estimates the one-time cash payout will increase to $375.7 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.)

“We know our players have to be thinking about what they could buy with $700 million and they would have plenty to choose from: a super yacht, the car or cars of your dreams, luxury vacation homes all over the world—the list goes on and on,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “We have seen strong Powerball sales throughout the past several weeks and we expect that momentum to continue. Just last week alone, we saw more than $1.1 million in Powerball sales. The time to get in on the Powerball action is now for a chance to win big!”

Powerball drawing results from Wednesday, February 1, were: 31-43-58-59-66 PB-9 with a Powerball Play of 2.

The $700 million Powerball jackpot has been growing since November 7, when a lucky California player purchased a world record $2.04 billion jackpot winning ticket. There have now been 32 consecutive Powerball drawings without a winner since the record-breaking $2.04 billion prize-winning ticket was sold.

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
