Powerball january 6th 2020

The Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $410 million ($316.4 million cash value) for the January 6 drawing. This is the highest the Powerball jackpot has been since March 2019 when a $768.4 million jackpot was won in Wisconsin.

A lot of Powerball players kicked off the New Year by winning cash prizes in the January 2 drawing – more than 1.3 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $2 million! One ticket in Arizona matched all five white balls to win a $1 million prize. Another ticket in Connecticut matched all five white balls and doubled the $1 million prize to $2 million by including the Power Play option for an additional $1.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in New York in the September 16 drawing. Since then, there have been 31 drawings in a row without a Grand Prize winner. Wednesday’s drawing will be the 32nd draw in the jackpot run. Since the jackpot was last won, there have been more than 19.5 million winning tickets across all prize tiers, including 20 tickets that have won $1 million and 10 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 jackpot has climbed to an estimated $410 million ($316.4 million cash value) for the January 6 drawing. This is the highest the Powerball jackpot has been since March 2019 when a $768.4 million jackpot was won in Wisconsin.

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.
