Lottery hopefuls have another chance tonight at a life-changing jackpot prize, thanks to Powerball. Powerball now offers three weekly drawings, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. For Aug. 31, the jackpot has increased to $134 million. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s prize is $75.3 million, before withholding.
Early this month, a PA Lottery player in Westmoreland County hit the Powerball jackpot and won $206.9 million. The winner, a Washington County resident, finally claimed their prize. No one has hit the jackpot since then, though thousands of PA players have won lower prizes. There’s nothing stopping another PA player from hitting the big one again.
Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below, after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

August was a lucky month for PA Lottery players
Yet another PA Lottery player has hit the top prize on a scratch-off, adding to the already long list of big winners in the Keystone State in August.
A retailer in Lancaster County sold the $1 million-winning Millionaire Bucks ticket. Millionaire Bucks tickets cost $20 and the game offers top prizes of $1 million. The ticket in question was sold at Turkey Hill on West State St. in Quarryville. They’ll receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
This news comes just a day after the PA Lottery reported a $3 million winner in Cumberland County. A Giant store in Carlisle sold that ticket, which was a $3 Million Diamonds and Gold scratch-off.
