The Powerball jackpot has grown to $277 million for the player who’s purchased the winning ticket on Saturday, Jan. 11. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $188.4 million.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within five minutes.

In most states, ticket sales end at least one hour before the drawing, but a state may halt sales earlier, such as Illinois, which stops sales three hours before the drawing. In Maryland and New Jersey, ticket sales end at 9:59 p.m.; in Virginia, they close at 10 p.m. Check with your state lottery for the cut-off time.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, Jan. 11, are: 03, 21, 23, 31, 59 and the Powerball of 03.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $1.586 billion, which was split by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

A player in South Carolina claimed the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot on Oct. 23, 2018, game officials said.

To win the Powerball jackpot a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot is enormous.

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot if you let the computer select your numbers, according to lottery officials. About 75 percent of winning tickets over the years had numbers picked by a computer.

Powerball Drawing For 01/11/20: Saturday Jackpot was $277 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 01/11/20was $277 million. Here are the numbers.

  • First Five: 03-21-23-31-59
  • Powerball: 03
  • Power Play: 2x

Saturday’s 01/11/20 Powerball jackpot was estimated at $277 million, with a cash option of $188.4 million. The jackpot could have increased if sales furthered lottery projections, according to officials.

The winning numbers on Wednesday (01/08/20) for the $258 million Powerball jackpot were: 02-04-07-43-56 with a Powerball of 22. The Power Play was 4x.

There was no grand prize winner on Saturday, but there was one ticket sold in West Virginia that matched all five white balls for the second prize of $1 million. Had they purchased the Power Play for an extra $1, that second-prize ticket would be worth $2 million.

The last grand prize winning ticket was sold in California on 11/02/19 for a jackpot of $150 million.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size—according to Powerball’s website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Wednesday and Saturday, and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Powerball jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can check the numbers for tonight, or any past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $40 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information, or to check any potential past numbers.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
