So far, there have been no Powerball jackpot winners in 2013. The first drawing of the year was on Wednesday, 01/02, but there were no winners.

There was, however, a $2 million Match 5 Power Play winner in Rhode Island. There were no winners of the $1 million Match 5 prize.

There were a total of 361,413 winners on Wednesday, winning a total of $4,408,038 in non-jackpot prizes.

The winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing were: 18, 20, 28, 35, 53, Powerball: 20.

The current estimated jackpot is now up to $60 million at $39.2 million cash value. The next drawing is on Saturday, 01/05.

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