The Powerball Jackpot continues to grow at a historic rate. No one successfully matched all the numbers on Saturday night leading to the 5th largest Powerball and Mega Millions jackpot in history. The Powerball jackpot currently stands at an estimated $1 billion with a cash option of $497.3 million for the next drawing on Monday, Oct. 31. If a player wins Monday’s jackpot, it will be the second largest jackpot in Powerball’s 30-year history and fifth largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history! It just takes one. There have been 37 Powerball drawings without a grand prize winner.  The last date that someone matched all the Powerball numbers was August 3rd. It only takes one. Play responsibility.
