Nobody has won the jackpot since mid-April, 33 drawings ago.

You still want to check your ticket, though.

Wednesday's winning numbers for July 3, 2023 were 68, 17, 24, 62, 48, with a Powerball of 23.

Your next shot at the Powerball jackpot is Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to an estimated $480 million ($240.7 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, July 11.

No ticket matched all six numbers in the July 7 drawing: the white balls 8, 10, 17, 55 and 66, plus the gold Mega Ball 3.
