Here's some Hoosier Lottery history for Powerball: the Hoosier state has seen 38 Powerball jackpot wins. A Hoosier Lottery player laid claim to the very first Powerball jackpot win in the first Powerball drawing in April 1992, and since then, Hoosier Lottery retailers have gone on to sell jackpot-winning Powerball tickets 37 more times -- more than any other jurisdiction.
Two of the game’s top ten ranking jackpots -- $314.3 million and $295 million -- were also scored in Indiana.
