Lottery players have another chance at winning big this week as the Powerball jackpot rose to an estimated $865 million.

Both the Powerball and Mega Million jackpots, now at $1.1 billion, have gone without big prize winners in recent drawings.

The current Powerball jackpot would be the fifth-largest prize in the game's history if won. The last winner hit the jackpot in Michigan in January, matching the winning numbers for the estimated $842.4 million prize.

Before you go out and purchase your Powerball tickets, here's everything you need to know about drawing days and times, how to play the lottery in Arizona and where to watch the draw.

When is the next Powerball drawing?

The next draw is on Wednesday, March 27.

What time is the next Powerball lottery drawing in Arizona?

The next drawing is at 10:59 p.m. ET, or 7:59 p.m. Arizona time, on March 27.

How much is the Powerball jackpot amount?

The jackpot pool is set to grow to an estimated $865 million and a cash value of $416.1 million.

What were the winning Powerball numbers on March 25, 2023?

The winning numbers for Monday night's drawing were 7, 11, 19, 53, and 68. The Powerball was 23, and the Power Play was 2X.

Did anyone win Powerball on March 25, 2023?

Nobody claimed a big prize-winning ticket from the March 25 Powerball drawing. However, you do not need to match all six numbers to win a prize on the Powerball.

Two tickets purchased in Florida and New York matched the first five numbers, with the exception of the Powerball, winning $1 million.

What was the Powerball jackpot for March 25, 2023?

The Powerball jackpot for Monday night's draw was for an estimated $813 million and a cash value of $391.1 million.

The Arizona Lottery has a "Where to Play" map that folks interested in participating can use to find the nearest store to purchase tickets.

How much are Powerball tickets?

If you are looking to purchase a ticket for the next Powerball draw, you should expect to pay $2 for each play. You can also purchase Power Play, which will multiply your winnings for another $1 per play.

What is the cut-off time for buying Powerball tickets?

According to the Arizona Lottery's website, the cutoff time for purchasing Powerball tickets is 6:59 p.m. Arizona time on the night of the draw.

The Powerball drawing is streamed live on the lottery website. It may also air on a local television station in your area.

The Powerball drawings happen three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET, or 7:59 p.m. Arizona time.

To win big on the Powerball, you must match all six numbers on your ticket. But you don't have to win big to win a prize.

You can win smaller prizes by matching five numbers on the ticket.

What are the Powerball payout options?

If you win the Powerball jackpot and are deciding on how to cash in, you should know you have options.

There are two payout options:

With the first option, the jackpot amount is spread out over 30 years as an annual payment. With the latter, the winner receives just over half that amount as a lump sum payment.

If you don't win the jackpot but instead win a smaller prize, the Powerball website has a helpful chart to see what you won.

How many numbers do you need to win in Powerball?

To win a prize, you only need to match one number. Here is a list of winning combinations.
