ALBUQUERQUE – New Mexico has some good news! A lucky New Mexico Lottery player has won $1 million playing Powerball® from the January 16, 2021 drawing.
Check your tickets. The winning numbers for the January 16, 2021 draw were 14, 20, 39, 65, 67 and Powerball number 2. The $1 million winning ticket matched all five White Ball numbers but missed the Powerball number.
All drawing game prizes must be claimed within 90 days from the date of the drawing or the first business day after the 90th day if the Lottery is not open for business.
Please, Play Responsibly and Safely
No one won the January 16, 2021 Powerball jackpot. The estimated Powerball jackpot for Wednesday, January 20, 2021 is now $730 Million. The Mega Millions estimated jackpot for Tuesday, January 19, 2021 is $850 million. This is the first time Powerball and Mega Millions have had jackpots above $700 million at the same time.
While this is very exciting for players, the New Mexico Lottery reminds everyone to please play responsibly. Players should remember to only purchase what they can afford. Also, please remember to play safe. We are still in a pandemic and playing responsibly also means playing safely by following COVID-safe practices. Some suggestions include using play slips and your own pen. Players can also ask for a Quick Pick, check their tickets online or at a self-service lottery terminal, try multi-draw and redeem prizes by mail.
