$1 Million Powerball Ticket Was Sold: The sale of a Powerball ticket for one million dollars was revealed by the Oregon Lottery on Wednesday in the city of Portland. Additionally, on Wednesday, two Powerball tickets, both worth $50,000, were purchased, one in the city of Portland and the other in the city of Troutdale.
The numbers 2-11-22-35-60, Powerball 23, and Power Play 2 were selected as winners in the drawing that took place on Wednesday.
There were several new millionaires created on Thursday morning despite the fact that there was no winner of the main prize on Wednesday. In addition to the million-dollar ticket that was purchased in Oregon, players in the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Virginia also purchased tickets that matched all five numbers except for the red Powerball.

Each of these players won one million dollars. Players holding winning tickets in Arkansas, Montana, and New Jersey have matched five numbers with the Power Play, earning them each $2 million.
Since Monday, when the Powerball jackpot hit one billion dollars, the Oregon Lottery has reported that more than $6.77 million worth of tickets had been sold in the state of Oregon.
The subsequent drawing will take place on Saturday evening. The jackpot on Saturday is expected to be approximately $1.5 billion, making it the second-largest amount ever won in the history of Powerball. The winner of Saturday night’s $1.5 billion prize will get their winnings in the form of an annuity, which will be paid out annually for the next 29 years. The majority of winners opt to receive their prizes in cash, which for the upcoming drawing would total $745.9 million.
Since the first drawing on August 6, there have been a total of 39 consecutive draws in which no one has won the Powerball. If that losing run continues for 40 drawings after Saturday night, the jackpot will almost probably become the greatest one ever won in the United States or anywhere else in the world.

The previous record for the most consecutive drawings of Powerball without a winner was 41, which was broken on October 4, 2021, when a winner in California claimed a prize of $669.8 million.
The Powerball jackpot of $1.586 billion, which was won in 2016 by three ticketholders in California, Florida, and Tennessee, will continue to be the largest prize available until someone wins it this time.
The $340 million jackpot that was won in Oregon in 2005 is the state’s record for the highest reward ever won there. In 2018, a winning Powerball ticket for 150 million dollars was purchased in Salem.
