Powerball adding third weekly drawing beginning in August

Soon, you’ll have a third chance to win big with the Mississippi Lottery. 

Powerball has announced that it will increase its number of drawings from two to three nights a week beginning in August. Alongside the Wednesday & Saturday night drawings, a new Monday night drawing will be added. According to the Mississippi Lottery Corporation, the first Monday drawing will occur on August 23, 2021, at 9:59 p.m. CST. Sales for the first Monday drawing will begin on Sunday, August 22, 2021.

“Our players really enjoy Powerball, and we are pleased to offer them the option of a third weekly drawing,” MLC President Tom Shaheen said. “By having an additional draw-night, there is a greater opportunity for faster growing jackpots and more cash winnings.”

The additional drawing on Monday will not change the Powerball game odds or set cash prizes. Players will continue to choose five numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. The cost of a Powerball ticket remains $2. The Power Play® feature will also be available for an additional $1 per play to multiply non-jackpot prizes.
