Powerball winning numbers $171M Jan. 29: Powerball lottery winners hit it rich

Feeling lucky tonight? A monstrous Powerball jackpot is up for grabs Jan. 29, 2014, and it's worth an amazing $171 million. All six Powerball winning numbers will also get you about $97.6 million in cash, reported MLive.com on Wednesday. How many Powerball tickets did you buy for tonight's drawing?

If no one matches all six Powerball winning numbers today, the next estimated jackpot could easily reach $200 million or more by the time the next drawing rolls around on Saturday, Feb. 1.

Meanwhile, New Jersey Lottery's Executive Director Carole Hedinger announced on Jan. 27, that one lucky lottery winner matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number during the last drawing.

The winning ticket was worth $10,000. Had the New Jersey Powerball winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option, the prize would have automatically doubled to $20,000 instead of the standard $10,000. The Powerball winner purchased the winning ticket in Atlantic County at the Philadelphia Liquor Store, 112 Philadelphia Ave., Egg Harbor City for the Saturday, Jan. 25 drawing.
