POWERBALL JACKPOT AMOUNT: $96 Million
Since the winning numbers for the huge $1.5 billion jackpot were drawn on January 13, there hasn’t been a jackpot winner in any Powerball drawing. This means that the jackpot has been growing steadily every Wednesday and Saturday. It’s now estimated to be $96 million, which would be $60.7 million in cash if there was one jackpot winner and they chose the lump sum (before taxes.) The drawing is tonight, January 30.
During Wednesday’s drawing, there were no $2 million winners either, but there was one $1 million winner. In total, there were 616,793 winners ranging from $4 up to $1 million. Be sure and doublecheck your tickets, because winning tickets go unclaimed every year. To learn more about how long the deadline is for claiming a win, please see this story.
