Powerball lottery: Did you win Saturday’s $640M Powerball drawing? Winning numbers, live results (1/16/2021)

The Powerball lottery jackpot for Saturday night is now an estimated $640 million after no one won Wednesday’s drawing.

The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has climbed to an estimated $640 million with a cash option of $478.7 million — making it the potentially the eighth largest in U.S. lottery history.

“The winning numbers were: 14, 20, 39, 65, 67. Powerball: 2. Power Play 3X.”

The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been won since Sept. 16, when someone who bought a ticket in Ballston Spa, New York, captured the $94.6 million top prize. Since then, 34 drawings have been held without a jackpot winner.

If someone wins the jackpot Saturday night it would be the fifth-biggest Powerball prize.

While no one hit Wednesday’s $556.7 million jackpot, 11 second-prize tickets worth at least $1 million apiece were sold across the country.

In New Jersey, five third-prize tickets were bought, each of which matched four numbers plus the Powerball. One — sold at Krauszer’s on Amwell Road in Hillsborough — was purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1 and is worth $100,000. The remaining four are valued at $50,000 apiece.

Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 4, 19, 23, 25 and 49. The Power Ball drawn was 14 with a Power Play 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.

A single ticket sold in Maryland matched all six numbers in the Wednesday night Powerball® drawing to win the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. Based on final ticket sales, the jackpot climbed to an estimated $731.1 million at the time of the drawing with a cash option of $546.8 million.

The lucky ticket holder will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $731.1 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $546.8 million. Both prize options are before taxes.

The winning numbers in the Wednesday, January 20 drawing were white balls 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, plus Powerball 22, and Power Play multiplier 3X.

Participating lotteries are reminding players to check their tickets for one of the nine ways to win. In Wednesday’s drawing alone, more than 4.4 million tickets won prizes ranging from $4 to $2 million.

12 tickets matched all five white balls but missed matching the red Powerball in Wednesday’s drawing to win a $1 million prize. The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in California (2), Georgia (2), Illinois (2), Maine, Michigan, New Jersey (3) and Oregon. One other ticket, sold in Maryland, matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million, because the ticket included the Power Play® option for an additional $1.

Wednesday’s drawing was the 36th drawing in the jackpot run that started back on Sept. 19, 2020. The jackpot win in Maryland capped what has been has been the longest jackpot run in Powerball history.

For the next drawing on Saturday, Jan. 23, the Powerball jackpot resets to $20 million ($15 million cash value). The 10X multiplier will be in play as part of the Power Play® option since the advertised jackpot is under $150 million.
