What are Powerball winning numbers for January 16? The January 16 Powerball drawing for $40 million happened at 10:59 pm Eastern and the winning numbers posted on websites across the world as soon as the numbers were drawn.
Some TV channels that aired the drawing live on Wednesday were not willing to follow through and show the drawing again.
The winning numbers for January 16 are: 3-51-52-61-64 and PowerBall 6. If only one person wins, the "lump sum" will be worth $24.8 million, before taxes.
There were three winners for last Wednesday's huge $1.5 billion jackpot, from California, Florida, and Tennessee.
The chances of winning are just a little better than 1 in 300 million but at least three people managed to defy those odds on Wednesday and emerge as the lucky winners.
The $1.5 billion pot will be split among the jackpot winners.
