LANSING, MI – A night after someone won the Mega Millions jackpot, a lone winning ticket was sold for the $559 million Powerball jackpot on Saturday, Jan. 6. That winning ticket was sold in New Hampshire.

The Red Powerball Power Number: 26

Powerball winners for Jan.6:

  • Along with the jackpot winner, $1 million winning tickets were sold in Connecticut, New Jersey, South Carolina, Texas and Washington.
  • However, none of those players also played the Power Play option which would have increased their winnings to $2 million.
  • Prior to the drawing it was announced the jackpot was worth $559 million, which was lesser than the $570 million that was announced Friday afternoon, suggesting that sales were not as strong as expected.
  • Overall, there were 4,003,400 winners in the drawing who won at least $4 each. In Michigan, there were 129,373 winners.
  • In Michigan, six tickets sold matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000. That was the largest prize won in the state.

Powerball 1/6/18 winning numbers, live lottery results for Saturday’s $570M drawing

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday’s estimated $570 million jackpot are: 12, 61, 30, 29, 33. PowerBall 26 and PowerPlay 3x.

Saturday’s Powerball jackpot of $570 million would be the seventh largest won in U.S. lottery history if someone snaps a 10-plus week drought and matches all the winning numbers.

The drawing, which takes places at 10:59 p.m., has a cash option of $358.5 million. It will be televised on WABC-7 in New York and Fox 29 in Philadelphia. The results will be posted here on NJ.com after the drawing.

The jackpot rolled to $550 million after no one matched five numbers and the Powerball for Wednesday’s drawing. Brisk ticket sales bumped it an additional $20 million on Friday.

Six second-prize tickets worth at least $1 million were sold, but none were bought in New Jersey. Two tickets sold in New Jersey matched four numbers plus the Powerball and are valued at $50,000.

No one has hit the jackpot since Oct. 25. That’s when a family in Louisiana won $191.1 million. They chose the cash option of $119,492,684.81 and received a check for $83,644,879 after federal and state taxes were deduced.

Lottery players hit the Powerball jackpot seven times last year. The largest of those was Aug. 23 when Mavis Wanczyk of Chicopee, Mass. bought a ticket worth $758.7 million. It’s the biggest prize won by a single ticket in the United States.

She took the cash option — worth $480,500,936. After taxes, Wanczyk received a check for $336,350,655.

A Powerball ticket costs $2. The odds of hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win the second prize of at least $1 million.

Drawings are held on Wednesday and Saturday. The game is offered in 44 states, the Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
