Powerball Results, Numbers for 12/23/20: Did Anyone Win the $321 Million?

The winning Powerball numbers in the draw on December 23, 2020, were 6, 13, 38, 39, and 53, the Powerball was 6, and the Power Play was 3X. The lottery jackpot was worth an estimated $321 million with a cash option of $247.1 million—but did anyone win?

Nobody won the Powerball drawing last night, so the jackpot has rolled over and is now worth an estimated $341 million with a cash option of $262.5 million.

However, two players, one from Massachusetts and the other from New York, each one $1 million by matching all five numbers.

Eleven players matched four numbers and the Powerball which has a prize of $50,000 but eight of these players used the Power Play and tripled their prizes to $150,000.

Nearly 500 players matched four numbers and won $100, with nearly 130 of these players winning $300 using the Power Play. An additional 1,304 players also won $100 but by matching three numbers and the Powerball. More than 320 of these winners used the Power Play to win $300.

More than 32,000 players matched three numbers and won $7, with more than 8,200 using the Power Play and winning $21. An additional 27,410 players also won $7 by matching two numbers and the Powerball, with 6,900 of these winners using the Power Play to triple their prize.

Finally, more than 700,000 players won $4 in last night’s Powerball draw. More than 208,000 did so by matching one number and the Powerball, while nearly 500,000 matched only the Powerball. Of these 700,000 winners, more than 175,000 used the Power Play to win $12.

So far this year, seven Powerball jackpots have been won. On January 29, $396.9 million—the biggest jackpot of the year—was won in Florida, and on February 12, $70 million was won in Michigan. A ticket bought in New Jersey won $190 million in the April 8 drawing while a West Virginia player won $136.4 on June 3. A week later, $22 million was won by a player in Wisconsin.
