The Powerball jackpot reached a record $2.04 billion for the Monday, Nov. 7 drawing, and had a single winner.
A ticket purchased in California claimed the biggest US Lottery jackpot of all-time. The previous record is $1.586 billion, which Powerball reached in 2016.
Monday’s drawing was the 41st since the last Powerball jackpot was won on Aug. 3.

How to buy Powerball tickets
Powerball tickets can be purchased through the Michigan Lottery, either online or at one of the more than 10,000 retailers throughout the state. Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
Tickets are $2, and Power Play can be added to each ticket for $1. Online purchases do carry a $5 minimum. Adding Power Play will double all prizes outside of the jackpot.
To win the jackpot, a player must match all five balls and the Powerball. Matching five balls in the drawing but not the Powerball results in a $1 million win.
Winners can accept the jackpot in a lump sum cash option, or in annuity payments.
Major jackpots a theme in 2022
The Powerball jackpot is now the second multi-state lottery drawing to reach the $1 billion-mark in 2022, as the Mega Millions did the same this past summer.
That jackpot jumped above $1 billion and was won on July 29 with a ticket purchased in Illinois.
Michigan Lottery remains popular
Those large jackpots could very well lead to another record year for the Michigan Lotto.
In 2021, the Michigan Lottery made a record-setting $1.419 billion contribution to the Michigan School Aid Fund. That marked the third consecutive year the lottery had contributed at least $1 billion to the fund.
Recently, the Michigan Lottery announced that former Detroit Piston John Salley would be partnering with them for The Big Spin television show.
Several major jackpots are still available in Michigan’s instant lottery scratch off games, as well.
