Almost six weeks have passed since the last Powerball jackpot was hit by a player in Arizona. With each passing drawing, the Grand Prize continues to grow. For tonight’s drawing, June 6, the Powerball jackpot prize is estimated at $198 million. If a winner chooses to take the cash value of the prize as a single payment, they’d still get $114.4 million before withholding.
Three drawings so far this year have resulted in big jackpot winners. The largest jackpot of the year was the first one hit on Jan 5. Two separate players picked the right numbers that time, splitting the $632.6 million prize. The most recent winner, on April 27, won $473.1 million or $283.2 million cash.

PA Lottery Cash 5 jackpot shared by two tickets
Saturday’s Cash 5 with Quick Cash drawing was a lucky one for two ticket holders. The jackpot was over $1.4 million on June 4, when tickets sold in Bucks and Lehigh counties matched all five numbers drawn: 2-23-34-39-43. The winners will split the prize and each take home $707,016 before taxes.
Winners aren’t immediately known. They’ll have to claim their prizes and have their tickets validated by lottery officials. Winners in PA have one year from the drawing date to claim their prizes.
Cash 5 doesn’t offer jackpots as annuities like Powerball and Mega Millions do. All prizes won on Cash 5 are paid in full, minus the requisite state and federal taxes. Drawings are held daily, offering players many chances to win, and allowing the jackpot to increase more often.
