The Powerball jackpot has rolled into the New Year after no player successfully matched all six numbers drawn on Saturday night, with the new grand prize totaling $810 million.

The winning numbers from the last drawing were white balls 10, 11, 26, 27, 34, and red Powerball 7 with a Power Play multiplier of 4.

The estimated total for the Jan. 1 drawing ranks as the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot and tenth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot.

“We’re excited to offer our players a jackpot of this magnitude to kick off the New Year!” Drew Svitko, Powerball Product Group Chair said. “While New Year’s is a time of celebration, we kindly remind our players to play responsibly. Let’s keep the fun in playing the game. It only takes one ticket to win.”

If a player wins the jackpot in the Jan. 1 drawing, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $810 million or a lump sum payment estimated at $408.9 million.

While there was no jackpot winner in the final Powerball drawing of 2023, five tickets won $1 million prizes by matching all five white balls drawn. There were also 67 tickets that won $50,000 prizes and 20 tickets that won $200,000 prizes.

The Powerball jackpot was previously won on Oct. 11 when a ticket in California won a $1.765 billion grand prize. Since then, there have been 34 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner.

At this time, the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
