The Powerball lottery jackpot has grown to more than half-a-billion dollars — $550 million — for the player who has the winning ticket on Wednesday, Jan. 13. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $411.4 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 Wednesday, Jan. 13, are: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49 and the Powerball of 14.

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.

Two lottery jackpots offering up around $1.3 billion

Now $550 million is big enough in its own right, but it is tough right now to talk about Powerball without talking about Mega Millions and vice versa. With the two lotto draw games each generating some of the biggest prize pools in the history of the game, the interest in one spurs the interest in the other.

The last time the Powerball jackpot hit was on Sept. 16, 2020. The winner of that drawing did hail from New York. They netted a $94.8 million jackpot. It came a day after the last Mega Millions jackpot hit on Sept. 15 for $120 million.

Amazingly, the combined total of the two jackpots still doesn’t eclipse the biggest lottery jackpot in history. That one was actually won on this date four years ago. However, no solo winner took home the nearly $1.6 billion jackpot. Instead three separate winners split the winnings up.

The biggest solo winner in US lottery history was the South Carolina player who won the $1.53 billion Mega Millions jackpot in October 2018.

Odds of winning Powerball

Let’s be clear: Your chances of winning the Powerball jackpot are not great. Players have a whopping one in 292,201,338 chance of matching all five white numbers and the red Powerball.

You might think that because more people are playing, a winner becomes inevitable. Really though, no matter how many people buy tickets, your chance of buying the winner does not change. You can certainly buy more than one ticket to increase the possibility you hit winning numbers, but even that cannot compensate for the fact it is wildly unlikely you will match all the winning numbers.
