The multi-state Powerball lottery jackpot jumped to an estimated $454 million for the drawing on Wednesday, April 27 after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Monday night. This jackpot has a cash value of $271.9 million.
While there was no grand prize winner in the Powerball lottery drawing, there are several winning tickets including a ticket sold in Texas that matched all five white balls and won $1 million dollars.
Another ticket sold in North Carolina matched all five white balls and doubled the prize from $1 million to $2 million, by including the Power Play feature for an additional $1, Powerball said in a statement.
A huge Powerball jackpot was previously won in the drawing on February 14 when a single ticket in Connecticut won a $185.3 million jackpot.
Another big jackpot was won before this year, when two tickets, sold in California and Wisconsin, split a $632.6 million jackpot in the Jan. 5 drawing.
That jackpot was classified as the seventh largest in Powerball lottery history.
Till the date, Powerball holds the world record for the largest lottery jackpot set in 2016. The record jackpot of $1.586 billion was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
