CONCORD, N.H. – Christmas came and went with no Powerball winner but New Hampshire Lottery players still have a chance to win big before the New Year with a $337 million Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing. The New Hampshire Lottery is expecting the one-time Powerball cash payout to be $210.4 million for Wednesday’s drawing. (Estimated jackpot amounts are before taxes).

“With just a few days left in 2017, the New Hampshire Lottery would like nothing more than to close out the year announcing another Powerball winner from the Granite State!” said Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery. “It was just last year when one of our lucky players took home the $487 million Powerball prize. The excitement is building for another big winner!”

New Hampshire has had 10 Powerball jackpot winners since Powerball launched in the Granite State 22 years ago, including the $487 million winner last year.
