Powerball jackpot rises to $305M for Wednesday drawing
The Powerball jackpot has soared to a jaw-dropping $305 million after no one matched all six numbers in Saturday night's multi-state lottery drawing.
The winning numbers were: 4, 13, 39, 46 and 51. The Powerball was 1.
Though no one matched all six numbers Saturday night, there were some nice consolation prizes.
Five Powerball tickets won $1 million because they matched five of the six winning numbers, according to the official Powerball website. The million-dollar tickets were sold in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
There has been no big Powerball jackpot winner since June 23 when a couple from Connecticut won $60 million.
