An uneventful Monday Powerball drawing means the jackpot continues to grow. The jackpot for today, Dec. 8, now sits at a whopping $291 million annuitized or $213 million with the lump sum cash option (before taxes).
Yes, the grand prize went unclaimed yet again, and the lower-tier winners all came in below the $200,000 mark. PowerBall made no new millionaires this time around.

How Does This Jackpot Stack Up?
At $291 million, this will be the third largest Powerball jackpot of the year if won in December. Even if the pot continues to grow through December, it’s not likely to catch up to the second-highest jackpot of 2021 by the end of the year.
The second-largest Grand Prize this year was $699.8 million, won in October. The largest was taken home in January, making the lucky winner $731.1 million richer. So far this year, six people have hit the jackpot. Will there be a lucky number 7 in 2021?
