The Powerball jackpot will continue to climb after the Wednesday drawing did not result in any winners for the $439 million grand prize. The cash option was $237.3 million.
The winning numbers for the Wednesday drawing were 6, 15, 22, 42, and 47, with a red Powerball of 26. The Power Play was 3X.
The next drawing will be held on Saturday night and feature a jackpot worth an estimated $473 million with a $255.7 million cash value.
No one has won the Powerball jackpot since Nov. 19, when the $92.2 million grand prize was won by a player in Kansas.
Along with no grand prize winners, no instant millionaires were produced in the latest lottery drawing. Players who had hit the Match 5 would have won $1 million. If a ticket holder had matched five numbers with a Power Play, they would have won $2 million.
The latest jackpot comes after a ticket holder in Texas won $1 million from the Monday Powerball drawing. The winning ticket was purchased at a Muchos 3 gas station in Austin.
The seven-figure prize came days ahead of another Mega Millions jackpot win. A Maine resident won $1.35 billion on Friday, which marked the second-largest amount in the lottery’s history.
Less than a week later, a NY ticket holder won the $20 million Mega Millions jackpot.
The odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 292,201,338. The odds of winning the Mega Millions are 1 in 302,575,350.
