No Powerball Winner, Jackpot Grows to $415 Million
There were no jackpot winners in Wednesday’s $361.5 million Powerball drawing, the Texas Lottery Commission announced about 90 minutes after the winning numbers were called.
Now Saturday’s jackpot will be $415 million.
Wednesday’s drawing was worth $361.5 million when the numbers were called at 10:59 p.m. ET — earlier in the day it was cited as $348 million — but it pales in comparison to the $1.6 billion Powerball prize shared by three winning lottery ticketholders in January, the largest ever jackpot draw in the world.
The winning numbers announced Wednesday were: 47, 69, 30, 66, 57. The Powerball was 3.
According to Powerball, the odds of winning the top prize Wednesday were one in more than 292 million.
No one has won the multi-state lottery’s full jackpot since March 2.
Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, as well as the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
