Powerball jackpot up to $550M after no victor Saturday

No one won Saturday night's Powerball jackpot.

The jackpot for Wednesday's drawing for the 8th largest Powerball jackpot ever is $550 million with a cash value of $335 million.

So get ready and get those tickets out.

Wednesday's winning numbers were: 18, 36, 45, 47, 69 with the Powerball number 14.

They are 30, 34, 39, 53 and 67. Two players in NY won $1 million by matching the first five numbers, according to the Powerball site.

When a jackpot victor is determined, the prize will reset at $40 million.

New Jersey lottery locations sold three of the $50,000 tickets and one ticket worth $100,000. The odds of a ticket matching four numbers and the Powerball are 913,129 to 1.

The Powerball jackpot was last won by David Johnson, a 56-year-old supermarket worker from Brooklyn, New York.

Statistically, you only have a one in 292.2 million chance of winning the big prize. "I said, 'Dad, I just won $1 million'". "Whether the victor (s) choose to take the annuity or lump sum, which is estimated at $352 million, we offer our congratulations and encouragement to take some time to process this life-changing prize". The total prize was the fourth largest jackpot in USA lottery history.

The Powerball jackpot was won eight times a year ago, including once in New Jersey.

The grand prize hasn't been won since the day after Christmas.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The Powerball game is played by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number.
