What are the latest Power Ball results? The intensity of tone in the voice which asks the question tends to be dictated by the jackpot amount at stake in the corresponding drawing.
Make no mistake, there is a huge range of prizes to shoot for – the minimum jackpot amount is set at $40 million while the maximum is a figure much more difficult to define. At the time of writing this, it sits at a world record 1586 million US dollars!

Powerball previous results
This section of the site is very much a work in progress, so do bear with us. We do want to arrange things so that you can access all results published for the year 2016, as well as dating back further, although we might draw a line at the turn of the century or so.
In the meantime, you can access older draw results by clicking the banner we previously pointed your attention to. The previous draw results pile up quickly, due to drawings taking place not once, but twice per week.
I suppose it is fair to say that the Powerball numbers for Saturday drawing are in more demand, it tends to yield more to the accumulative ticket sales prize pot, but make no mistake – you don’t want to miss out on the Wednesday action either.
To clarify what is at stake, here is a table detailing the 8 prize categories of the lottery in question. It is worth noting that while we all (or most of us at least) dream of winning the grand jackpot prize, there are other handsome rewards in play.
