The multi-state Powerball lottery’s Saturday night drawing had no tickets sold with all six numbers, therefore the estimated prize for Wednesday’s drawing is anticipated to rise to $416 million.
The Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the game, stated that no tickets were sold with five numbers but no Powerball number.
On Saturday, the numbers 24, 26, 39, 47, 57, and the Powerball number 23 were drawn. The winnings totaled $404 million.
Since a ticket with all six numbers was sold, the drawing was the 23rd.
According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, there is a 1 in 293 million chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number. The odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.87 overall.
In 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Powerball lottery is played.
