Numbers drawn in $500M New Year's Day Powerball jackpot

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Numbers were drawn in the New Year's Day Powerball jackpot, estimated at $500 million.

Saturday's winning numbers were: 39-48-12-50-06 Powerball: 07

The winning numbers Wednesday were 02 - 06 - 09 - 33 - 39 and Powerball 11.
The next drawing will take place on January 1. It will be Powerball's first drawing on New Year's Day in two years.

You can see the Powerball drawings at abc7ny.com/lottery on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m. on ABC7NY.

"Ticket sales have been strong through the holidays, and we anticipate the majority of ticket purchases for the next drawing will happen on New Year's Day," said May Scheve Reardon, Powerball Product Group Chair and Missouri Lottery Executive Director. "A jackpot of this size is great way to start the New Year, but please remember to play responsibly."

The Powerball jackpot hasn't been won since October 4, when a single ticket won a massive $700 million grand prize.



Since then, there have been 36 consecutive drawings without a first-prize winner.
Powerball is played in 45 states plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

Mega Millions is also streamed at abc7ny.com/lottery on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m.
