Biggest Powerball wins of the year
The Powerball jackpot has been hit five times so far in 2022. The first and largest one was hit by two players in different states on Jan. 5. Players in California and Wisconsin split the $632 million prize, starting the year off on a high note for Powerball.
Second on the list this year, in terms of prize amount, was the jackpot hit on April 27. A single ticket sold in Arizona hit the $473.1 million prize. If the winner chooses to take the cash option, they’d gross $283.2 million before taxes.
The most recent jackpot, hit in PA, ranks as the fourth largest out of the five this year. But even the cash value of that prize, $122.3 million, will be a life changer for that lucky Westmoreland County player.
