POWERBALL® Debuts New Monday Drawing on August 23 Powerball® will now be drawn three nights, weekly

Mondays are about to get better for POWERBALL® players! Beginning Monday, Aug. 23, Powerball will be drawn three nights a week. A new Monday drawing will join the weekly lineup of Powerball drawings currently held on Wednesday and Saturday, adding an additional chance for players to hit the Powerball jackpot.

Players can watch the Monday Powerball drawings live online at with a new live stream feature that launched earlier this summer, or on the CT Lottery’s website at

Powerball is a multi-state game with a minimum jackpot of $20 million. Jackpot increases for each drawing are determined based on sales. A player must select five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls; then select one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball. The Powerball jackpot grows until it is won.

Drawings take place at 10:59 p.m. on drawing nights, and wagering is closed at 10:00pm and reopened at 11:15pm.  Powerball tickets are $2 per play. The addition of the third drawing does not change the overall odds of Powerball. The overall odds of winning a Powerball prize are 1 in 24.9.  Odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338 million.
