AUSTIN A summer of jackpot fever has trickled into the fall, as the Powerball jackpot prize has ballooned to an estimated annuitized $750 million for the Saturday, Sept. 23, drawing, the seventh largest Grand Prize in game history and the third largest of 2023. Saturday’s drawing offers a cash value worth an estimated $350.6 million. If there is no jackpot winner for Saturday’s Powerball drawing, the Grand Prize for the Monday, Sept. 25, drawing will be an estimated annuitized $785 million, a press release said.
“Excitement for Saturday’s Powerball drawing is building in Texas,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery, in the release. “While we are keeping our fingers crossed that this Powerball jackpot is won by a Texas Lottery player, we want to remind our players to play responsibly. It only takes one ticket to win.”
Saturday’s drawing will be the 28th in the current Powerball jackpot run since starting as an estimated annuitized $20 million for the July 22 drawing. This is the largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs since the estimated $1.08 billion jackpot from the July 19 drawing. The winning ticket was sold in California.
Since joining the Powerball game in 2010, Texas has had two Powerball Grand Prize winners, including its most recent in February 2015 when TL Management Trust, Andrew Weber, Trustee of Austin, claimed a share of the $564.1 million Grand Prize with two other winners.
