january 9th winning powerball numbers

Powerball Results, Numbers for 1/9/21: Did Anyone Win the $470 Million?

The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing of the Powerball were 14, 26, 38, 45 and 46. The Powerball was 13 and the Power Play was X2.

But no-one has claimed the $470 million jackpot for the January 9 draw, according to the Powerball website. Therefore, the prize money will roll over to the next drawing on Thursday, January 14. The estimated jackpot then will be $550 million (with a cash value of $411.4 million)—the ninth highest jackpot in Powerball history.

The current jackpot is also the highest since the $758.7 million prize offered in March 2019, according to the Powerball website.

Although no-one won the jackpot on Saturday night, there were some big winners. A player from Florida and another from Pennsylvania matched all five white balls correctly to win a $1 million prize.

Fifty players matched four white balls and the Powerball correctly to win $50,000 prizes. Another 18 players doubled their prize money to $100,000 with a Power Play purchase.

The Powerball jackpot has not been won since September 16 last year, according to the Powerball website. Since then, there have been 33 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner and the January 14 drawing will be the 34th.
