Tonight’s Powerball® jackpot is estimated at $1 billion, with an estimated cash value of $516.8 million. The jackpot ranks as the third largest Powerball jackpot and the seventh largest U.S. lottery jackpot.
National ticket sales have doubled from this same time last week, and game leaders forecast the bulk of ticket sales for tonight’s drawing will happen in the final hours leading up to state lottery sales cut-off times.
The next Powerball drawing will take place at the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee at 10:59 p.m. ET tonight – Wednesday, July 19. The drawing will be broadcast live by carrier TV stations across the country and live streamed on Powerball.com.
Drew Svitko, Powerball Product Group Chair and Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director:
