$4 Million in Texas Still Unclaimed as Powerball Nears $2 Billion
Will 41 Be a Lucky Number?
Every time someone purchases a ticket for the current Powerball jackpot, a new record is set. On Saturday, November 5, the jackpot reached $1.6 billion, eclipsing the old U.S. lottery mark of $1.56. That jackpot is now worth an estimated annuitized $1.9 billion for the November 7 drawing.
Tonight's drawing will mark the 41st in the current Powerball jackpot run since starting as an estimated annuitized $20 million for the August 6 drawing, tying for the longest jackpot run in Powerball history with the 41-draw run that stretched June 9 – Oct. 4, 2021, resulting in an estimated annuitized $699.8 million Grand Prize
Monday night’s drawing offers a cash value worth an estimated $929.1 million. If there is no jackpot winner for tonight’s Powerball drawing, the world record Grand Prize for the Wednesday, November 9 drawing would grow to an estimated annuitized $2.3 billion.
But, come on, there just has to be at least one winning grand prize ticket sold tonight. There's a lunar eclipse late tonight. The Astros are World Series champs again. Election Day is Tuesday.
Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery, reminds players to play responsibly. "
It only takes one ticket to win. If it appears that you have the jackpot-winning ticket, we encourage you to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, seek financial and legal advice and call the Texas Lottery to schedule an appointment to claim the prize.”
Unclaimed Millions in Texas
This current jackpot run has produced nine $1 million winners in Texas with four of those occurring over the last four drawings (one on Oct. 29, two on Oct. 31 and one on Nov. 2). However, four of those nine $ 1 million payouts remain unclaimed.
If you have friends in Round Rock, Houston, Humble, or Paris, Texas, you may want to reach out to them. Those cities are where the $1 million unclaimed winning tickets were sold.
