If you’re someone who only plays the lottery when the jackpot is REALLY big, now’s your time to shine. Tonight’s Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $835 MILLION.

The largest Powerball jackpot, $2 billion, was won on November 7, 2022, by one ticket, sold in Altadena, California. You can learn more about the Powerball jackpot (odds of winning, lump sum pay out numbers and more) by clicking HERE.

Before you decide which Powerball numbers you’re going to play, let’s take a quick look at people who have gone BROKE after winning a big jackpot. Jay Sommers won $5 million in Michigan back in 1988. He was 20 at the time and now has NONE left. Jeffrey Dampier won $20 million back in 1996. He divorced his wife, gave her half but later had an affair with her sister and was killed by her. And Ronnie Music Jr. won $3 million in the 2015 Georgia state lottery but spent most on crystal meth so it’s gone. The point of this is to let you know, regardless of how much you win, make sure you invest so you don’t go broke! It can happen very easily.

How do you choose which Powerball numbers you play? Is it a Quick Pick? Do you pick family member’s birthdays? Regardless of your method, there are certain numbers that get drawn more than any others. We have broken it down for you so you don’t have to think or do any work. Here are the Powerball that have been drawn the most in history. We have also listed the stores in Massachusetts that have sold the most jackpots over $1 million so you can decide where you want to buy those winning tickets.
