The Powerball jackpot took a leap from $510 million to $535 million on Friday! The excitement is growing at retail locations across Ohio, and players are dreaming about what they would do if they won. From new homes to vacations to charity, everyone has a plan.
Saturday’s jackpot isn’t the largest in Powerball history, that one came in January of 2016 at $1.5 billion! Still, $535 million is more than enough to generate excitement. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292,000,000. Most players in Ohio choose the auto-pick option, but our last Powerball winner chose her numbers to win a $124.9 million jackpot.
No matter how you choose to play, it’s $2 per ticket and you can add the Power Play for an additional $1 to multiply your prize by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times.
Don’t forget you can use the Ohio Lottery app or a ticket checker in any Ohio Lottery retail location to scan your ticket to see if it’s a winner. The numbers will be posted on http://www.ohiolottery.com and the Ohio Lottery app after the drawing Saturday night.
