The Powerball lottery draw was held on Saturday, January 28th, 2023 and it had a jackpot of $572 million that came with a cash value of $308.9 million.
No grand prize winner
The winning numbers that were drawn in the Powerball draw on Saturday night were 02, 18, 23, 27 and 47, while 15 was the Powerball number and 4X was the Power Play.
However, none of the players were able to match all the six numbers that were required for winning the jackpot, which means that the prize will roll over to the next drawing.
The upcoming drawing of the Powerball lottery is now scheduled to take place on Monday, January 30th, 2023 and it will not have a jackpot of $613 million, which will come with a cash option of $329 million.
While there was no winner for the grand prize in the drawing on Saturday night, there were other people who did manage to win prizes.
There were several Powerball lottery players who were able to become instant millionaires. Three of them were able to match all five numbers, which allowed them to win a prize of $1 million.
But, there was only one player who not only matched the five numbers, but also bought the Power Play option. Therefore, they were able to double their winnings from $1 million to $2 million.
It should be noted that there has not been a jackpot winner in the Powerball lottery since November last year.
The last time the jackpot had been claimed in the Powerball lottery draw was on November 19th and the winner walked away with $92.9 million.
The Powerball lottery draw is held every week three times on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and it can be played in 45 states, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
