$100,000 winner from Saturday drawing

The Powerball® jackpot for the Monday, Sept. 25 drawing is up to an estimated $785 million ($367 estimated cash value), making it the fourth largest jackpot in Powerball history.

This is the 29th draw in the current jackpot run. It was last hit July 19 for $1.08 billion in California.

One lucky Mississippi Powerball player matched four out of five white balls, plus the Powerball, from the drawing Saturday, Sept. 23. Because they paid the extra dollar for the Power Play option, which was 2 Saturday, they doubled their initial win of $50,000 to $100,000. The winning ticket was purchased from Shell at the intersection of Hardy Street and South 24th Avenue in Hattiesburg.
