The Powerball Jackpot Just Hit $750 Million. Here’s the Deadline to Buy Tickets Tonight in Every State

The Powerball jackpot is now up to a whopping $750 million, and the next drawing is tonight. It’s the biggest lottery jackpot of 2019 so far, and if someone has all of the Powerball winning numbers it would represent the fourth-highest lottery jackpot of all time in the U.S.

Bear in mind that the odds of winning Powerball are unlikely, to put it mildly. To win the Powerball jackpot, you must have all five white numbers (between 1 and 69) and the red Powerball number (between 1 and 26) correct. The odds of having all of the winning Powerball numbers on your ticket are 1 in 292 million.

Still, there are many other ways to win a Powerball prize of some sort. You’ll win $1 million if you have all five winning white balls but not the red Powerball, for example, and you’d win $50,000 by getting four white balls and the Powerball correct.

Most importantly, you can’t win Powerball if you don’t buy a ticket in time for the latest drawing. Each Powerball ticket costs $2, and the deadline to buy Powerball tickets varies by state. Here’s all the information you need for a chance to win the $750 million jackpot in the Powerball drawing tonight, Wednesday, March 27.

When Are the Powerball Winning Numbers Drawn?

Powerball drawings are every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET. Some local nightly news programs show Powerball drawings live, while other stations around the country announce Powerball winning numbers at a little after 11 p.m. ET.

You can also find out about the winning Powerball numbers online at sites such as powerball.com and lottery.net.

The next Powerball drawing is tonight (Wednesday, March 27), when a jackpot estimated at $750 million is up for grabs. The lump sum cash value of today’s $750 million jackpot is $465.5 million, before taxes. (And yes, if you are lucky enough to win the Powerball jackpot, our advice is to take the lump sum rather than annual payments.)

What Is the Deadline to Buy Powerball Tickets?

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The deadline to buy Powerball tickets varies by location. So we checked the state lottery websites around the country for their Powerball cutoff times, and all of the deadlines are listed below.

Powerball jackpots roll over and get bigger and bigger if no one has all of the winning numbers in drawings. And as lottery jackpots grow, so does the likelihood for long lines to buy tickets. So it’s best to buy Powerball tickets well before the deadline arrives in your state. Also, take note that many states offer online lottery ticket sales.

The Powerball jackpot is $750 million currently. Here's the deadline to buy Powerball tickets, even with tough odds of winning Powerball. ]]>
