Powerball january 7 2021

The Powerball jackpot will roll into 2021 with an estimated Grand Prize of $384 million ($295.4 million cash value) for the January 2 drawing. This is the highest the Powerball jackpot has been since January 2020 when a $396.9 million jackpot was won in Florida.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in New York in the September 16 drawing. Since then, there have been 30 drawings in a row without a Grand Prize winner. Saturday’s drawing will be the 31st draw in the jackpot run.

While there were no $1 million or $2 million winners in the December 30 drawing, more than 1.1 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $100,000. The $100,000-winning tickets were sold in Arkansas and Pennsylvania. During the current jackpot run, there have been more than 18.1 million winning tickets across all prize tiers, including 19 tickets that have won $1 million and nine tickets that have won $2 million.

2020 produced seven Powerball jackpot-winning tickets:

Jan. 29, 2020 – $396.9 million – Florida

Feb. 12, 2020 – $70 million – Michigan

April 8, 2020 – $190 million – New Jersey

June 3, 2020 – $136.4 million – West Virginia

The Powerball lottery jackpot has ballooned to nearly two-thirds of a billion dollars — $640 million — for the player who has the winning ticket on Saturday, Jan. 16. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $478.7 million, lottery officials said.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within 5 minutes.

Ticket sales end at least one hour before the drawing in most states, but a state may halt sales earlier, such as Illinois, which stops sales three hours before the drawing. In Maryland and New Jersey, ticket sales end at 9:59 p.m.; in Virginia, they close at 10 p.m. Check with your state lottery for the cut-off time.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, Jan. 16, are: 14, 20, 39, 65, 67 and the Powerball of 02.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $1.586 billion, which was split by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

To win the Powerball jackpot, a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot is enormous.

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot if you let the computer select your numbers, according to lottery officials. About 75 percent of winning tickets over the years had numbers picked by a computer.

Powerball tickets cost $2 each. Find locations where you can buy your Powerball tickets here.
