There have been 21 consecutive Powerball drawings in the Powerball jackpot without a big prize winner since then.

The Powerball winning numbers in the Powerball jackpot for September 6, 2023 are 9-14-20-23-63, Powerball 1 and Powerplay 3X .

The Powerball jackpot has a one in 292.2 million odds of winning.

According to King 5, huge lottery jackpots have become more regular in recent years as lottery authorities have modified the rules and ticket prices to increase top awards.

The largest shift in Powerball history occurred in 2021, when authorities chose to add a Monday drawing to the weekly program of Wednesday and Saturday evening drawings. Powerball stated at the time of the announcement that the addition of the Monday drawing will result in “larger, faster-growing jackpots.”
