The Powerball Grand Prize gets another bump for the Monday, Jan. 17 drawing. Hopefuls are vying for a $53 million jackpot tonight. The lump sum cash value is $37 million before taxes.

There were no winners of top-tier prizes from Saturday’s drawing. But don’t let that get you down. Fewer winners mostly suggests that less tickets are being sold. The jackpot really can be hit at any time. In fact, in January last year, two drawings in a row produced jackpot winners. Exactly one week later, another Grand Prize winner was crowned!

Check your numbers right here tonight after the official drawing at 11:00 p.m.

Powerball Winning Numbers for Monday, January 17, 2022

Winning numbers: 9 – 24 – 35 – 46 – 65

Powerball: 22

Multiplier: 2x

Double Play Offers Additional Chance to Win

Powerball now features three drawings per week, but if you’re looking to improve your chances of winning, an additional ticket feature is available in 13 jurisdictions. For an extra $1, Powerball’s Double Play allows you to play your chosen numbers in an additional drawing held after the main Powerball drawing. The top prize in every Double Play drawing is $10 million.

With Double Play, your numbers are eligible to win prizes in both drawings. If you play your tickets with Power Play, be aware that it only applies to the main drawing. There is no multiplier for prizes in the Double Play drawings. The odds of winning are the same for both drawings; you simply get to try your numbers a second time.

Double Play is only available in CO, FL, IN, MD, MI, MO, NJ, PA, PR, SC, SD, TN and WA.
