Biggest Powerball Winners

The Powerball jackpot regularly grows into the hundreds of millions of dollars, and sometimes passes $1 billion. It can climb so quickly for a number of reasons.

The top prize starts at $20 million and rolls over every time it is not won. There is no jackpot cap so it can just keep growing and growing.

There is a large player pool as the game is offered in 45 states - plus three other jurisdictions. As the jackpot rises, even more tickets are sold across the country. The list below shows the biggest Powerball jackpots ever won.

Jackpot Date Winners
$2.04 billion November 7, 2022 A ticket holder from California was the only player to match all the numbers in this record draw, winning a jackpot of more than $2 billion. The cash option was worth $997 million. The winning ticket was sold at Joe’s Service Center, 15 W Woodbury Road, Altadena. There was such high demand for tickets that the draw was delayed by around 10 hours due to one of the participating lotteries experiencing a technical issue with its sales verification system. The jackpot was eventually claimed in February 2023 by Edwin Castro, who said he was ‘shocked and ecstatic’. He said he wanted to remain private so turned down media opportunities to speak more about his big win.
$1.76 billion October 11, 2023 A Californian player won this big jackpot with a ticket bought in Kern County, at Midway Market and Liquor in Frazier Park. It was the second time in a row that the jackpot had passed $1 billion, following the big win in July 2023. The cash value was $774.1 million.
$1.6 billion January 13, 2016 Three ticket holders made lottery history when they won an incredible jackpot worth $1.586 billion. The lucky winners were from California, Florida and Tennessee and each took home a pre-tax total of $528.8 million. John and Lisa Robinson of Munford in Tennessee were the first to come forward, going on the Today show to break the news just days after the drawing was held. David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith from Melbourne Beach in Florida stepped forward the following month, and in July 2016, Marvin and Mae Acosta of Chino Hills, California, claimed their share of the prize, ending months of speculation about what had happened to the third ticket.
$1.08 billion July 19, 2023 A ticket sold in California matched all six numbers drawn to win the $1.08 billion jackpot. The billion-dollar ticket was sold in downtown Los Angeles at Las Palmitas Mini Market. More information to follow.
$842 million January 1, 2024 A ticket holder from Michigan enjoyed the perfect start to 2024 when they matched all the numbers in this New Year’s Day drawing. The jackpot had been on its way towards $1 billion following a run of 34 drawings without a winner, while the cash value was $425.2 million. The winning ticket was sold at the Food Castle in Grand Blanc, located at 3035 East Grand Blanc Road.
$768 million March 27, 2019 Wisconsin's Manuel Franco became the biggest Powerball winner on a single ticket at the time after buying 10 tickets from a Speedway on Beloit Road in New Berlin, Milwaukee. The 24-year-old, who came forward less than a month later, revealed that he had screamed for about five to ten minutes when he found out he had won. Having decided to take the cash option of $477 million, he said he wanted to take a break before 'helping out the world'.
$758 million August 23, 2017 Mavis Wanczyk, 53, bought the winning ticket at a petrol station in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The win was the highest ever on a single lottery ticket at the time, surpassing the previous record set in 2013. Ms Wanczyk opted to take the $480.5 million cash lump sum over the $758.7 million annuity. She revealed that she had already quit her job as a patient care worker when she took part in a press conference to promote the win just a couple of days later.
$754 million February 6, 2023 The jackpot grew past three quarters of a billion dollars during an 11-week roll at the end of 2022 and start of 2023. It was only stopped from going higher by a single ticket holder from Washington, who matched all the numbers to become the Evergreen State’s biggest winner. Becky Bell from Auburn was revealed to be the winner. As an employee of Boeing, she said she had a lucky feeling after seeing the advertised jackpot was $747 million. Bell chose the cash option of $407.2 million.
$731 million January 20, 2021 An anonymous group, known as The Power Pack, became Maryland’s biggest-ever winners when they banked this $731 million jackpot. They came forward four months after the draw and decided to take the cash option of $546 million. It was revealed that the Quick Pick ticket they purchased, from the Coney Market convenience store in the town of Lonaconing, was the only one they had purchased for the draw. The player who checked the ticket had told the rest of the group at the time, “This can’t be right, I’m going to work,” before they eventually got the win verified.
$699 million October 4, 2021 A record-breaking jackpot of $699 million went to a single ticket holder from California following four months without a winner. This sequence of 40 consecutive rollovers was the longest in Powerball history, and when it was finally won it became the first grand prize ever to be won on a Monday. It was also the highest jackpot ever paid out in California. Scott Godfrey eventually came forward to claim it more than two months later, having purchased 10 Quick Picks from Morro Bay Albertsons (730 Quintana Road). He decided to take the cash option of $495 million.
