The last Powerball top prize was won in Michigan, but there are 45 Powerball states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands (48 total jurisdictions). We compiled a list of states with the MOST Powerball jackpot winners in the history of the game. 

The luckiest of the lucky? That would be Indiana. The Hoosier State boasts 39 Powerball jackpot wins since 1992, when Powerball got its start.  Read on to see how your state stacks up!

Keep in mind that five states don’t have state lotteries: Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah. Mississippi has a *new* state lottery that began selling Powerball tickets in January 2020.
