The Powerball jackpot has jumped to $258 million for the player who’s purchased the winning ticket on Wednesday, Jan. 8. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $175.5 million.

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

In most states, ticket sales end at least one hour before the drawing, 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 Wednesday, Jan. 8, are: 02, 04, 07, 43, 56 and the Powerball of 22.

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

A player in South Carolina claimed the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot on Oct. 23, 2018, game officials said.

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 lottery: Did you win Wednesday’s $410M Powerball drawing? Winning numbers, live results (1/6/2021)

The jackpot for the Powerball drawing on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2020 is worth an estimated $410 million. Powerball.com

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $410 million with a cash option of $316.4 million.

The winning numbers were: 1, 20, 22, 60 and 66. The Power Ball drawn was 3 with a power play of 3.

There have been 31 drawings held since a $94.8 million ticket was sold in Ballston Spa, New York for the Sept. 16 drawing.

If someone hits Wednesday’s jackpot, it would be the 27th largest in U.S. lottery history.

No one hit Saturday’s $384 million jackpot across the country, though there were a pair of second-prize tickets sold. A ticket bought in Connecticut is worth $1 million, while one purchased in Arizona is valued at $2 million because the winner spent an extra $1 on the Power Play option. Each matched five numbers but not the Powerball.

In New Jersey, a third-prize $50,000 ticket was sold at Aldo Food Market on North Harrison Street in East Orange, lottery officials said.

Saturday’s winning numbers were: 3, 4, 11, 41 and 67. The Power Ball drawn was 5 with a Megaplier of 2X.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.

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

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence is open by appointment only. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.
