Today marks eight weeks since the last time a lucky Powerball player hit the jackpot. The previous drawing on Monday had no Grand Prize winner, so the jackpot rolls to $312 million for tonight, June 22. The lump sum cash value is $175 million before taxes.
The lump sum value is what a winner would get if they choose to take the prize all at once in a single payment.
The jackpot has been hit only three times so far this year. The first time, on Jan. 5, it was hit by two players in different states. Those jackpot winners split the whopping $632.6 million prize.
A little more than a month later, a player in Connecticut took the prize which had grown to $185.3 million for the Feb. 14 drawing. Most recently, the winner in Arizona hit the $473.1 million jackpot, nabbing the highest prize for a single player this year.
Powerball drawings are now held three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, at 11:00 p.m. ET.

The PA Lottery funds essential services across the state
The PA Lottery is the only state lottery in the US that specifically benefits the older population. Lottery proceeds have contributed more than $32.6 billion to senior services and benefit programs since the lottery’s inception in 1971.
In the last fiscal year alone, traditional lottery games brought in more than $1.3 billion for older Pennsylvanians. That includes the multi-state games like Powerball.
The PA online lottery site benefits seniors, as well. Online lottery sales make up only a small percentage of lottery revenue, but last year, online players took in more than $771 million in prizes.
