PHOENIX (June 6, 2017) – The Powerball jackpot keeps on rolling, reaching $375 million for tomorrow night’s draw. This jackpot has rolled 19 times in a row, resulting in the 12th largest Powerball jackpot!

“It is always an exciting time for the Lottery, our players and our retail partners when the Powerball is rolling,” said Gregg Edgar, Executive Director of the Arizona Lottery. “This is the 12th largest Powerball jackpot, which creates enthusiasm for our players, driving higher sales. Revenue from these high jackpots positively impacts proceeds benefitting programs and services that support Arizonans.”

This year has already seen three Powerball jackpot winners, with the last winning ticket sold in Arizona for the April 1 draw.

Wednesday night’s winner will have the option of taking the $375 million windfall over a 30-year annuity or opt for an estimated one-time cash payment of more than $235.4 million.

In addition to tomorrow night’s drawing, Powerball players have eight additional ways to win exciting cash prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million from the purchase of a single $2 ticket. Players can also purchase a Power Play for $1 extra for the chance to multiply their non-jackpot winnings by up to five times.

Saturday night’s winning numbers were 3-9-21-41-54, and the lucky Powerball number was 25. Even though no one won the top prize, over 35,000 Arizona players won cash prizes.
