AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — There were no winners of the Powerball jackpot in its draw on Wednesday, October 4th and the first prize has skyrocketed to an estimated $1.4 billion (estimated cash value of $643.7 million). This jackpot ranks as the 3rd largest in the Powerball game and 5th largest among U.S. lottery jackpots.
Powerball has never before offered billion-dollar jackpots in consecutive jackpot cycles. The last time the lottery was won was on July 19th, when a single ticket purchased in California won a prize worth $1.08 billion. There has been no jackpot winner in the 33 consecutive drawings since then.
Powerball ticket sales have been skyrocketing along with the surging jackpot and lottery fever is at its peak in Texas as well. People across the state now have a convenient way to participate in lottery draws by ordering their tickets at theLotter Texas, the leading lottery courier service with thousands of satisfied customers.
