Powerball Winners by State

Powerball has created hundreds of millionaires since its first draw was held in 1992, but some states have had more success than others when it comes to winning the jackpot. The odds of winning the jackpot are the same - 1 in 292.2 million - regardless of where you play the game, and it is likely that the states near the top of the list have either offered the game for a longer period of time or have a larger number of regular players.

The biggest jackpot ever won, of $1.58 billion in January 2016, was shared between three players – one each from California, Florida and Tennessee. Have a look at the table below, which is updated whenever the top prize is won, to discover how many jackpot-winning tickets have been sold in each state.
