Tonight’s Powerball at $850 Million – 4th Largest Ever

The Powerball jackpot for the September 27th drawing is now at $850 million, the 4th largest in the history of the drawing.

The Powerball jackpot has surged to $850 million for tonight’s drawing, following an increase from $835 million on Wednesday morning due to robust ticket sales. The cash value for this jackpot stands at $397.4 million.

Now the second-largest jackpot of the year, and the fourth-largest in Powerball history, this prize continues to capture attention nationwide.

If a player clinches the jackpot tonight, they will face a choice between an annuitized prize of $850 million or a lump sum payment of $397.4 million, both figures before taxes. Opting for the annuity, the winner will get one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments, each increasing by 5% annually.

The draw is set for 10:59 p.m. Ticket sales cut-off times differ by jurisdiction, typically ending 1-2 hours before the scheduled drawing. Players are advised to check with their local lottery for its specific sales cut-off time.
