New York - The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing topped $500 million, hours before the winning numbers were drawn.

The winning numbers for January 6, 2016 are: 47, 2, 63, 62, 11, and a Powerball 17. The multiplier is 3x.

If one person has the winning ticket, they will take home $310 million.

It’s the sixth largest jackpot in the history of America’s two highest-paying lotteries.

If there’s no winning ticket, the jackpot will keep growing as more people buy tickets.

The instant scratch-off games available in most states typically draw more players, but only Powerball and Mega Millions have such staggering grand prizes.

To think the one would have to advertise their win is absolutely crazy...all states should be included in the NO need to reveal names policy.
It is scary to think that it becomes public knowledge to any creep to know who has won!, reason enough not to want to win. I can't imagine feeling safe under those circumstances.
