Don’t forget to play POWERBALL® responsibly

Saturday’s POWERBALL® jackpot has an estimated annuity of $350 million.

Dover, DE — The POWERBALL® jackpot has continued to rise since March 27, 2019, when a Wisconsin man won the $768.4 million dollar jackpot. Since then, no one has matched all five numbers and the POWERBALL®, and the jackpot has climbed to $350 million dollars.

“Playing POWERBALL®, especially when the jackpots get this big, can be fun and exciting for Delaware Lottery players,” said Vernon Kirk, Director of the Delaware Lottery. “But it’s also important to remind everyone who does play to play responsibly.”
