No one hits jackpot in Wednesday drawing
Two Maryland Powerball players woke up $50,000 richer this morning after their tickets won third-tier prizes in the Wednesday, Jan. 13 drawing. Although no one across the country hit the jackpot, Maryland had 64,996 winning tickets ranging from $4 to $50,000.
The jackpot rolled to $640 million for the Saturday, Jan. 16 drawing with a cash option of $478.7 million. If won, this would be the 5th-largest jackpot in Powerball history and 9th-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history. This is the highest the Powerball jackpot has been since March 2019.
