“The anticipation is certainly building as this historic jackpot keeps growing,” said Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “In Pennsylvania, we urge our winners to first sign their winning ticket, then especially for big jackpots like this one, contact a financial advisor and contact Lottery headquarters to learn how to file your claim.”
 
Tonight’s drawing will be the 41st Powerball® drawing since the jackpot was last won on August 3 in Pennsylvania. The jackpot run has tied the game record for the number of consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner. The only other Powerball jackpot run to reach 41 consecutive drawings ended on Oct. 4, 2021, with a $699.8 million winner in California.
 
In Pennsylvania, this recent jackpot run has generated more than $143 million in sales, creating a profit of more than $57 million to benefit older Pennsylvanians. As of Monday afternoon, in Pennsylvania, Powerball tickets were selling at the rate of an estimated $22,500 each minute with more than 10,600 tickets being sold per minute.
 
“In Pennsylvania, players have the option to purchase Powerball tickets online or by visiting one of our nearly 10,000 retailers,” added Svitko. “However you decided to buy your tickets, we’d like to issue a friendly reminder that players must be 18 or older and ask them to please play responsibly.”
Players with questions about playing online may email support@PAiLottery.com or call 1-833-530-PLAY (7529).
 
If there is no Powerball® winner in Monday’s drawing, the jackpot for the Wednesday, November 9 drawing will be an estimated $2.3 billion, or $1.1 billion cash.
 
The Pennsylvania Lottery offers the following additional tips to players:

  • Always check your PA Lottery tickets at the time of purchase.  Tickets cannot be canceled, so you should immediately speak to the clerk or manager to resolve any concerns before leaving the store.
  • Always sign the back of your PA Lottery ticket. This will help prevent someone else from trying to cash it in the event your PA Lottery ticket becomes lost or stolen, or if someone tries to scratch out, white out or change your signature.
  • Never post your winning ticket on social media. This will prevent someone else from trying to cash your winning ticket. Claim your prize first and then share your story!

Pennsylvania Lottery players have options to purchase their Powerball® tickets online or by visiting a retailer. Players can find lottery-selling locations closest to them by visiting the Find a Retailer section of the Lottery’s website.
 
Additionally, pooling ticket purchases with friends can be a fun way to play responsibly. To help players manage their pooled ticket purchases, Pool Play forms are available at www.palottery.com.
 
Winners are not known until prizes are claimed and tickets are validated. Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball® winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes. Winning tickets purchased at a Lottery retailer should immediately be signed on the back. Online winnings automatically appear in a player’s account after the claim has been processed. To initiate an online prize claim, winners should call 1-800-692-7481. Players may visit palottery.com for more information about how to file a claim.
