Powerball Jackpot Rolls to $400 Million

Washington’s Lottery Imagines what Washingtonians Could Do If They Won

OLYMPIA: On Saturday, August 3, the Powerball jackpot rolled over to $400 million. That’s enough money to buy every resident in the state of Washington (6.9 million) his or her own MP3 music player (up to $55)!

The next drawing will take place this Wednesday, August 7, at 8:00 p.m., and Washington’s Lottery has imagined what a Washingtonian could do if they won the $400 million jackpot.

  • Pay for all of Ferry County (7,600) to climb Mount Everest (up to $50,000).
  • Invite every resident of Spokane County (472,650) and King County (1,942,600) to go indoor skydiving (up to $150).
  • Treat every resident in Clark County (428,000), Yakima County (244,700), and Skagit County (117,400) to a digital tablet device (up to $500).

A Washingtonian wouldn’t be the only winner if their Powerball numbers are selected. If the Powerball jackpot winner is from Washington, the retailer that sold the ticket will receive a $50,000 selling bonus.

Washington’s Lottery Powerball ticket sales benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, which gives scholarships to local college students. To learn more about Washington’s Lottery and to review all up-to-date winning numbers, please visit
