Here are the winning numbers in the New Year's Day 2022 Powerball drawing.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Saturday night marked the first Powerball drawing of 2022 and the estimated $500 million jackpot was even higher when the balls were selected.

Powerball announced the grand prize increased to $518.7 million at the time of the drawing. The winning numbers were 6, 12, 39, 48 and 50. The Powerball was 7 and the multiplier was 2x.

There was no immediate word if anyone won the jackpot or the smaller $1 million prizes.

While the jackpot this time is large, the chance of winning all that money remains minuscule at one in 292.2 million. The odds of winning in general are 1 in 24.9. It's not uncommon to have months go by without a grand prize winner.

No one has won the Powerball jackpot for 37 drawings in a row. The last time someone hit jackpot was Oct. 4 in California, winning $699.8 million. That jackpot was the seventh largest in U.S. lottery history and fifth largest in Powerball history.  

Curious about the largest jackpot ever? Powerball says it holds the world record for largest jackpot. The record $1.586 billion payout, set in 2016, was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee. 

Since Aug. 23, Powerball drawings have been held three times a week to increase interest and grow prizes more quickly. Drawings are held each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern.

Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are two dollars.
