Powerball News

Powerball draw number 1181 on Thursday January 3 2019 will kick of the New Year with a huge $50 Million jackpot.

The huge draw comes after the weekly Powerball has rolled over for the past 6 weeks after it was last won on November 15 when one entry collected the whole $3 Million division one prize. This latest Powerball draw will also be the first major jackpot of 2019 that has jackpotted beyond its initial guaranteed prize pool.

January has been a particularly lucky month in recent years for big jackpot winners in Powerball, with a $70 Million jackpot won in 2016 and a $55 Million jackpot won in 2018. And both times a single entry scooped the whole prize, in fact, the $55 Million Powerball last year caused a lot of news coverage after it took almost 6 months for the winner to claim their prize.

Winning all or a share of the life-changing jackpot would surely be an amazing way to begin 2019, and you can get your official Powerball tickets online from our trusted partner.
