Lottery players will soon have more opportunities to hit the Powerball as it adds a third weekly drawing to its lineup.

The weekly Powerball schedule will now start with a Monday night drawing in addition to its drawings on Wednesday and Saturday nights.

Lottery officials say they hope the additional day will help generate larger, faster-growing jackpots.

The changes go into effect Aug. 23, 2021 — a Monday.

The current estimated Powerball jackpot is $211 million, and the next drawing is Wednesday night at 10:59 p.m. ET.

Powerball is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
