Was your Monday after Thanksgiving a lucky one? Only one way to find out!

In a matter of weeks, the Powerball jackpot jumped from $20 million to $352 million. And it all starts with a $2 lottery ticket.

After no one matched all five numbers plus the Powerball in the Saturday, Nov. 25, drawing for $340 million, the grand prize climbed to the current pot. In case you're wondering, Saturday numbers were 27-33-63-66-68 and the Powerball was 9. Power Play was 2x. But it wasn't all bad news: There was a big winner from Saturday night's drawing. A ticket purchased in Iowa matched 5 plus the Power Play for a $2 million prize.

The next drawing was Monday, Nov. 27, aka Cyber Monday, for $352 million with a cash option of $163.3 million. Monday's numbers were 2-21-38-61-66 and the Powerball was 12. Power Play was 2x. Those number rolled over again, meaning Wednesday's Powerball jackpot moves to $374 million, with a cash option of $173.5 million.

Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving in which online shoppers can get deals on holiday gifts. Fun fact: No one will ever win Powerball and Mega Millions on Thanksgiving as the drawings only take place Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays for Powerball and Tuesdays and Wednesdays for Mega Millions.

However, there was a Powerball drawing for Black Wednesday 2023 (rollover, see below); a Mega Millions drawing on Black Friday 2023 (a rollover); and a Powerball drawing on Small Business Saturday 2023 (rollover, see below).
