Sorry, You Didn’t Win the Lottery. The Powerball Jackpot Is Rolling Over for Monday at $522 Million

There was no winner in the first Powerball drawing of 2022 … which is why I’m still here at my job, writing this story.

But hey! The jackpot rolls over to an estimated $522 million for Monday, so we all have another chance at champagne wishes and caviar dreams.

If you still want to check your numbers on the non-existent chance that there was some kind of error and you really could hand in your two-week notice—they were 6, 12, 39, 48, 50, with the Powerball of 7.

It’s been almost three months since someone hit the Powerball jackpot. A single ticket in California raked in a $699.8 million grand prize on October 4. Since then, there have been 38 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner, the game operator said.

While the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 to 24.9, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, according to Powerball.

Powerball holds the world record for largest jackpot. The record $1.586 billion cache was shared in 2016 by winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee.

Tickets cost $2, and drawings are each Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.
