Powerball jackpot hits $522 million

Here are the winning numbers in the New Year's Day 2022 Powerball drawing. Nobody won the big prize, but four tickets were worth $1-2 million.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Saturday night marked the first Powerball drawing of 2022 — but nobody won the jackpot of more than $500 million. 

The jackpot is now up to $522 million, with a cash value of $371.5 million. No one sad won the Powerball jackpot for 38 drawings in a row. The next drawing is set for Monday.

The winning numbers were 6, 12, 39, 48 and 50. The Powerball was 7 and the multiplier was 2x. A ticket sold in Maryland was worth $2 million, and three tickets sold in Arizona, California and Florida were worth $1 million each. 

While the jackpot this time is large, the chance of winning all that money remains minuscule at one in 292.2 million. The odds of winning in general are 1 in 24.9. It's not uncommon to have months go by without a grand prize winner.

The last time someone hit jackpot was Oct. 4 in California, winning $699.8 million. That jackpot was the seventh largest in U.S. lottery history and fifth largest in Powerball history.  

Curious about the largest jackpot ever? Powerball says it holds the world record for largest jackpot. The record $1.586 billion payout, set in 2016, was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.

Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are two dollars.
