Arkansas Scholarship Lottery
LITTLE ROCK — A single ticket sold in California won a Powerball® jackpot worth $2.04 billion ($997.6 million cash) after matching all six numbers drawn in Monday’s delayed drawing – white balls 10, 33, 41, 47, 56 and red Powerball 10. The Power Play® multiplier was 2X.
Due to a technical issue, the Powerball drawing was delayed Monday night and performed this morning at 8:57 a.m. EST at the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee. Final ticket sales pushed the jackpot beyond its earlier estimate to $2.04 billion at the time of the drawing, making it the world’s largest lottery prize ever won.
In Arkansas, a player in both Forrest City and Hot Springs each won $50,000 in last night’s drawing by matching four white balls and the Powerball. Because they purchased the Power Play option for an additional $1, they each multiplied their prize by 2X to win $100,000.
A total of 56,241 Arkansas players have winning tickets worth a total $588,160 cash prizes – 30,885 of those winners bought the Power Play and multiplied their prizes.
“I would like to thank our players who joined us on this historic jackpot run,” said Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Executive Director Eric Hagler. “A portion of every Powerball ticket purchased increases proceeds to scholarships.”
