Rodney Young / $9.01 Million

Rodney Young is the Lotto America jackpot winner from the April 1, 2020 drawing. The winning ticket was sold at Blue Wing Market, 5716 McMinnville Hwy. in Woodbury, TN.

Jeffrey Love / $21.6 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. (July 12, 2019) – A Lotto America ® ticket worth $21.6 million was in the glove box of an Elk River resident’s car until this morning. Jeffery Love was on his way to work when he found out that he is a multimillionaire. He initially called into work and told them he would “be a little late.” It wasn’t long before he called back and let them know that he wouldn’t be in at all today.

Chuck Anderson / $4.38 Million

CLIVE, Iowa (May 10, 2018) – A Davenport man on Thursday claimed a $4.38 million lottery jackpot, acknowledging that he had beaten long odds to win a jackpot with a ticket he received as a free play in a lottery promotion.

But Chuck Anderson emphasized that he wasn’t getting ahead of himself.

Kujava Family / $22.8 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – A brother and sister from Badger, Minn. have a long-standing agreement that if “one wins, we both win”—and a Lotto America jackpot worth $22.8 million was no exception.

Debbie Kujava purchased the $22.8 million winning ticket for the March 14 drawing at Holiday Stationstores, located at 503-3rd St. N.E., in Roseau on her way home from work on March 12.

David Kokenge / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Council Bluffs man couldn’t believe his eyes when the self-checker machine read $20,000 after scanning his Lotto America ticket.

“So I ran it through probably half a dozen times,” laughed Kokenge. “It might have been more than half a dozen.”

David Kokenge, who is 66 and recently retired, was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot in the Feb. 14 drawing. He matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball℠ to win a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Des Moines man was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot and ended up winning a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball in the January 6 drawing to win a $20,000 prize.

The winning numbers in that night’s $17.71 million jackpot drawing were: 9-13-26-38-48 and Star Ball 7. The All Star Bonus multiplier number was 3.

Spicer purchased his winning ticket at C Fresh Market, 801 University Ave. in Des Moines.

Lotto America® is a new game with a familiar name!

The original Lotto*America game was launched in 1988 by the Multi-State Lottery Association. At the time, there were seven participating lotteries: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oregon, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Washington DC. Nine additional lotteries began selling the Lotto*America game in the years that followed.

The final Lotto*America drawing was held on April 18, 1992.

On April 19, 1992, sales began for a new multi-jurisdictional draw game – Powerball®.

Select five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls; then select one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

Choose your numbers on a play slip or let the lottery terminal randomly pick your numbers.

Where

Powerball is played in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands!

Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.

Sales cut-off times vary by one to two hours before the drawing, depending on the selling jurisdiction.

To find out where to watch the drawings, click here.

Power Play

Ask for Power Play® with your Powerball purchase!

For an additional $1 per play, the Power Play feature can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times!

The multiplier number is randomly selected just before each drawing.

The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less.

The Match 5 prize with Power Play is always $2 million.

Multi-Draw

Play the same set of numbers in multiple drawings!

Select the number of consecutive drawings you want to play in the Multi-Draw or Advance Play section of your play slip or tell the retailer how many drawings you wish to play.

The number of Multi-Draws or Advance Plays available for purchase is dependent on the selling jurisdiction.

How TALL

A Powerball jackpot of $40 million may not seem like much, but ask yourself this – is $40 million really a small amount of money? Is the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. a small building?

If you were to stack $100 bills, take a look at the heights the money would reach at each estimated jackpot amount.
