Powerball Jackpot Projected to Reach Half a Billion Dollars


Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Lottery is projecting the Powerball jackpot will rise to $500 million for Saturday night’s (9/9) drawing. The one-time cash payout is expected to be $242.4 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are determined before taxes are withheld.)

“The excitement has begun for our New Hampshire players with the chance to win half-a-billion dollars,” said Charlie McIntyre, Executive Director, New Hampshire Lottery. “Players are jumping at the opportunity to become the Granite State’s next millionaire and we anticipate an increase in ticket sales right up until the drawing Saturday night!”

One lucky player purchased a $150,000 winning Powerball ticket for the drawing on Wednesday night (9/6) at the Rapid Refill on Peach Tree Lane in Merrimack.
