Numbers Picked For $1.5 Billion Powerball Jackpot Scott Olson/Getty Images

The jackpot prize for the Jan. 26 Powerball draw jumped to an estimated $91 million with a cash value of $63.5 million. The Wednesday winning numbers were 04, 11, 38, 49 and 69. The Powerball drawn was 16 with a Power Play of 3x.

There are still no lucky winners of the jackpot as well as the second prize. Meanwhile, there are reportedly six lucky winners who have won third prize, which is $50,000, while another player who purchased Power Play won $150, 000. The winners matched four of the white ball numbers and the red Powerball. A lot of smaller prizes have been won, 161 players who matched four white ball numbers, which put their winnings at $100, while 72 people with Power Play won $300.

The next Powerball draw will be on Jan. 29 with an estimated grand prize of $104 million with a cash value of $72.5 million.

To get a chance to win the grand prize, a player must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. The five numbers need to be selected from 1 to 69 for the white balls, while the remaining number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

To claim jackpot prizes, the winners will have options, they can either select their prize as an annuity or a lump-sum payment. The annuity guarantees the winner to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years. The annual payments increase by 5% until the 30th and final payment. The 30 payments added up equal the value of the annuity.

The Powerball costs $2 per play. Powerball is available in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 pm ET. Meanwhile the sales cut-off times vary depending on the selling jurisdiction, mostly by one to two hours before the drawing schedule.

The Powerball drawing is aired live on TV stations throughout the state; WBKB-TV 11 (CBS), WDIV-TV 4 (NBC), WNEM-TV 5 (CBS), WXSP-TV (MyNetwork TV), WLAJ-TV 53 (ABC), WMKG-TV 38 (IND), WLUC-TV 6 (NBC/FOX) and WGTU-TV 29/WGTQ-TV 8 (ABC).
