INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 10, 2016)  – There was no jackpot winner in Saturday night’s $949 million Powerball drawing. The jackpot estimate is now a mind-boggling, record-breaking $1.3 BILLION for Wednesday.

Although no player matched all six numbers to snag last night’s jackpot, players should check their tickets carefully because there were three $50,000 winners in the Hoosier state.


Tickets worth $50,000 were sold in Bedford, Evansville and Hammond.  Those tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number. The holders of these tickets should sign the back and contact Hoosier Lottery customer service for claim instructions.  The 24-hour toll free number is 1-800-955-6886.
