Jan. 18, 2016 — Happy Monday folks! We hope you had a great weekend. Both jackpots from each game rose a bit over the weekend, getting us back on track for another huge jackpot.
No one was able to match all six numbers for Powerball’s grand prize, which bumped the jackpot up to an estimated $50 million. There were however 3 states that had match five winners: New York, Pennsylvania and Arizona. The winner in Arizona selected the Power Play option to double their winnings to $2 million. In addition, there were just under a million Powerball players that took home non-jackpot prizes, together winning a total of about $10 million. The winning Powerball numbers for the January 16, 2016 drawing are: 3 – 51 – 52 – 61 – 64 Powerball: 6 Power Play: 2x
Mega Millions also rolled over this weekend as no one matched all six numbers in Friday’s drawing. The next jackpot is an estimated $30 million. There was, however, one new millionaire from Oregon! Lots of players were lucky enough to take home non-jackpot prizes this weekend, as there were just under one and a half million players who were able to match a winning combination of numbers. The winning Mega Millions numbers for the January 15, 2016 drawing are: 29 – 41 – 53 – 54 – 70 Megaball: 12 Megaplier: 2x
Congratulations to all of this weekend’s winners. Grab your ticket for this week’s drawings, starting Tuesday (January 19, 2016) with Mega Millions. Remember – you can’t win if you don’t play!
