As soon as once more, there was no Powerball jackpot winner, and Wednesday’s $1.2 billion prize grew to an estimated $1.5 billion for the following drawing.
That closes in on the largest prize ever received within the 30-year historical past of the sport, which was the $1.586 billion jackpot received by folks in three states in 2016.
Nobody on Wednesday matched all 5 numbers — 02-11-22-35-60 with the Powerball of 23 — sport officers introduced.
The subsequent drawing is Saturday.
The prize has grown so giant as a result of the final time somebody received the jackpot was Aug. 3, three months in the past. When nobody wins, the jackpot rolls over and will increase.
The sport crossed the $1 billion mark over the weekend, which was the second time it has ever achieved so.
The chances of successful the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
