Press Release from CT Lottery

CT Lottery players now have more than 310 million reasons to get into the Powerball game!  The Powerball jackpot for Saturday night's drawing is worth an estimated $310 million with a projected cash value of $193.4 million, setting a new all-time high record.  The old record of $177,000,000 was set six years ago on Feb. 18, 2006.

"CT Lottery had the incredible good fortune of awarding the largest prize ever won in lottery history on November 2, 2011—a $254.2 million Powerball jackpot,” said CT Lottery’s President and CEO, Anne M. Noble.  "We're hoping that Saturday night's lucky numbers produce another jackpot prize winner from the Nutmeg State."

The Powerball jackpot has been rolling since it was last won on December 24 in Maryland. Saturday will be the 14th consecutive drawing and the game’s highest jackpot in 2012.

Powerball is drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. and is offered at more than 2,700 lottery locations statewide.

The CT Lottery reminds the public that purchasers must be 18 or older, and to please play responsibly.  For more information about CT’s lottery games, visit ctlottery.org or call (860) 713-2700.

I quit playing when they insulted the dollar by doubling the price of hope.
