The Powerball jackpot has been the talk of the town, especially after someone in Florida laid claim to a whopping $215 million just last week, ending a stretch of draws without a jackpot winner. Now, as the Powerball jackpot bounces back to $47 million for Monday's drawing, following a series of draws without a winner, the anticipation is building once again.

Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $47 Million: What You Need to Know

Here's a snapshot of what's ahead for the Powerball drawing on Monday, May 13:

  • Rising Jackpot: Monday's Powerball jackpot swells to $47 million after recent draws left the grand prize unclaimed.
  • Drawing Time: The winning numbers are set to be drawn shortly after 11 p.m. ET, with results to be updated below.
  • How to Play: Learn the ins and outs of purchasing Powerball tickets and choosing your numbers.
  • Power Play Option: Boost your non-jackpot winnings with the Power Play feature for an additional $1.
  • Where to Buy: Tickets are available at local stores or online in select states through Jackpocket, the digital lottery courier.

The Powerball drawing is a moment many lottery enthusiasts look forward to, with the potential to turn dreams into reality. To participate, players must select six numbers: five white balls ranging from 1 to 69 and one red Powerball between 1 and 26. For those looking to increase their chances of winning, adding a Power Play for an extra $1 can multiply non-jackpot prizes.

For a hassle-free option, players can opt for a "Quick Pick," where a computer generates a random set of numbers. Drawings take place three times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Without a jackpot winner, the prize grows, fueling the excitement and dreams of potential winners.

Tickets are available at convenience stores, gas stations, and grocery stores. In some locations, tickets can also be purchased at airport terminals. For a digital option, the Jackpocket app serves as the official digital lottery courier of the USA TODAY Network, offering a convenient way to buy tickets, choose numbers, and collect winnings online in select U.S. states and territories.

As we await the upcoming draw, remember that Powerball offers a chance to dream big. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the game, the thrill of the draw brings people together, all hoping for a shot at financial freedom. Stay tuned for the winning numbers and updates on Monday's Powerball drawing.
