NEW YORK – There were no winners in the final Powerball drawing of 2021, and the jackpot grew to $483 million, according to the game operator.
The winning numbers Wednesday were 02 – 06 – 09 – 33 – 39 and Powerball 11.
The next drawing will take place January 1.
It’s been almost three months since someone hit the Powerball jackpot. A single ticket in California raked in a $699.8 million grand prize on October 4. Since then, there have been 37 drawings in a row without a jackpot winner, the game operator said.
While the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 to 24.9, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, according to Powerball.
Powerball holds the world record for largest jackpot. The record $1.586 billion cache was shared in 2016 by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
Tickets cost $2, and drawings are each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.
