Powerball Jackpot Climbing Toward $700 Million for Wednesday Night’s Drawing


Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Lottery is projecting the Powerball jackpot will jump to $672 million, which would make it the 10th-largest Powerball jackpot on record. The New Hampshire Lottery expects the one-time cash payout to reach $320.5 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.)

“We are excited to see the Powerball jackpot continue heating up, and we are even more excited by the response from our players,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “Over the past few weeks, we have seen a steady increase in sales as Powerball sales last week alone reached $1.1 million, and we expect that trend to continue leading up to tomorrow night’s drawing. Don’t miss out on the action – buy your tickets today!”

Powerball results from Monday, September 18, were: 02-21-26-40-42 PB-9 with a Power Play of 3.

The $672 million Powerball jackpot has been growing since July 19, when a lucky California player purchased a $1 billion jackpot winning ticket. Since the drawing in July, there have been 27 consecutive Powerball drawings without a jackpot winner.
