  • It’s been three months since the last person won the Powerball lottery jackpot.

The Powerball jackpot has spent three months incubating. It’s now nearing the $1 billion mark.

The prize — now ranked among the top 5 largest Powerball jackpots ever — has a cash value of $452.3 million, according to the lottery’s website.
