And the winning ticket numbers are: 32-16-19-57-34 with 13 as the Powerball.
Soo…did all your numbers match!? Don’t worry if you didn’t, you can still win money even if you got some of it right. And if NOBODY had a perfect match, then that means we’ll just have another drawing…and the pot will grow EVEN MORE!
The Jan. 6 drawing for $500 million was the 18th without a winner, and the jackpot has been growing massively since this all began on Nov. 7. The previous record held for a lottery jackpot was $656 million, which was part of a Mega Millions payout won by three lucky buyers in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland back in 2012. Yes, it’s true — more than one person can have the winning numbers, so you might have to share.
If you are lucky enough to win, you have two options: Get the money paid out over 30 years, or, take the money immediately and receive an estimated $496 million (IF you’re the only winner). Yeah…still not too shabby! Unfortunately, the odds of winning are 1 in 292.2 million, so you’ll need to get pretty darn lucky!
Should no one win AGAIN during this drawing, there’ll be another drawing on Jan. 13. Every state except Nevada, Utah, Mississippi, Alabama and Alaska participate in Powerball, so you shouldn’t have to go far to get your tickets if it comes down to that!
HollywoodLifers, did you enter the Powerball? Did you win anything?!
