Powerball Jackpot Increased for Saturday Drawing

Lincoln, NE – October 21, 2022 – Due to high sales, the Multi-State Lottery Association has increased the estimated jackpot amount for the Saturday, October 22 Powerball drawing to $580 million or $278.2 million with the cash option selected.

The Powerball jackpot starts at $20 million and continues to grow each drawing until it is won. There have been 33 consecutive Powerball drawings since August 6 without a jackpot winner.

Ten jackpots ranging from $2.5 million to $365 million have been won in Nebraska since the Nebraska Lottery began offering Powerball in July of 1994. The largest Powerball jackpot won in Nebraska occurred in February 2006 when a group of eight coworkers at the ConAgra Foods ham and corned beef plant in Lincoln split a $365 million jackpot.
