The Biggest Powerball Jackpots Of All Time

The Biggest Powerball Jackpots Of All Time

When it comes to lottery jackpots, the U.S. Powerball stands as the undeniable powerhouse among all lotteries. Within the United States, it's not uncommon to see jackpots reaching hundreds of millions of dollars, and on occasion, even soaring into the billions. Powerball holds the distinction of boasting the largest-ever lottery jackpot globally, an astonishing $2.04 billion!

What is Powerball?

Powerball is an American lottery established in April 1992, being the successor to the original Lotto America, which operated from 1988 to 1992. Available in 46 states, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Powerball draws occur on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 Eastern Time (02:59 GMT / 03:59 BST). Managed by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), Powerball boasts an unrestricted jackpot, capable of climbing into the billions, unlike major European lotteries which have jackpot caps.
