Powerball Jackpot At $50 Million For First 2013 Drawing

By: Chris Crum - January 2, 2013

A Florida ticket won the $50 million Powerball jackpot last week. Now, it’s at $50 million again.

The last drawing was on Saturday, 12/29. With drawings taking place on Saturdays and Wednesdays, tonight will bring the first drawing of the New Year.

Saturday’s winning numbers were 26, 46, 50, 52, 55, Powerball: 14. There were no jackpot winners for that one, though there was a $2 million Match 5 Power Play winner in South Carolina, as well as a $1 million Match 5 winner in Colorado.

There were a total of 399,245 winners of non-jackpot prizes totaling $5,893,382.

Odds of winning the jackpot, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.

The $50 million jackpot may not be much compared to the recent $587.5 million prize, but there are more than a few people who would be happy to claim it. Here are a few from Twitter:
