Here’s another bit of good news (if you plan on trying your luck once more) if there are no winners tonight, the jackpot will jump to a crazy $1 billion, according to a DC Lottery official who spoke to ABCNews. However, that is nowhere near the record-breaking $1.6 billion Powerball drawing that happened back in January 2016, which was won by a group of co-workers in Tennessee. Before this drawing, there had not been a jackpot-winning Powerball ticket since June 14, when it had hit $40 million.
