Powerball winning numbers for 1/23/23

The lottery game has been without a grand prize winner since November 19, the same month Powerball had a record-breaking $2.04 billion jackpot.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — power ball turns heads for once with more than half a billion dollars up for grabs in Monday night’s drawing – and no winner means the jackpot will keep growing.

The prize rose to $502 million after Saturday’s draw with a $271.1 million cash option.

With no winner on Monday, the estimated grand prize for Wednesday’s drawing rises to $526 million.

The lottery game has been without a grand prize winner since November 19, the same month Powerball had a record-breaking $2.04 billion jackpot. While $502 million is an attention-grabbing number, the jackpot prize hasn’t cracked the top 10 biggest lottery prizes in the US

Earlier this month, another popular lottery game had a massive billion-dollar payout. A Mega Millions ticket sold in Maine won $1.35 billion, making it the fourth largest lottery win.

Powerball winning numbers for January 23rd

The winning numbers for Monday were 12-31-47-58-60, Powerball 23.

No one matched all six numbers, but a ticket in Virginia matched five without a Powerball to win $1 million.

What are the odds of winning the Powerball?

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are slim – one in 292.2 million.

In recent years, huge lottery jackpots have become increasingly common as lottery officials have changed the rules and ticket prices to increase the top prizes.

In 2021, the lottery game saw its biggest change when Powerball officials added a Monday draw to their weekly lineup of Wednesday and Saturday night draws. At the time of the announcement, Powerball announced that the addition of Monday’s drawing would result in “bigger, faster-growing jackpots.”

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
