Powerball Jackpot Grows 1/20

Jackpot Rolls Over:
Jan. 21, 2016 – The Powerball jackpot continues to grow as no one was able to match all six numbers in the January 20th drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers were 5, 39, 44, 47, 69 and the Powerball was 24. The Power Play Multiplier drawn Wednesday was 5x, so winning tickets with the Power Play option added are worth five times their normal prize value.

There was one state that matched all five numbers for a million dollars and that state was Georgia!! Congratulations!

In addition, there were eight players matched four of the white balls and the Powerball to win third prizes Wednesday night, and three of those chose the power play option.  The Powerplayers will receive a $250,000 prize while the other winners will receive the normal $50,000 prize.

Overall, more than 665 thousand Powerball players became winners Wednesday night, scoring more than $7.3 million in prize money.

The next drawing will be held Saturday night at 11 p.m., and the estimated $60 million annuity jackpot carries with it a $38.1 million cash value.
