Wednesday evening saw no jackpot winners for the Powerball drawing worth $700 million dollars.
This brings the estimated jackpot up to $800 million for the next drawing on Saturday.
Numbers drawn for Wednesday were 19, 36, 37, 46, 56, and a Powerball of 24.
Nobody has had a match for all six numbers since Aug. 3.
This brings the grand prize to the fifth-largest in U.S. history.
There have been 36 Powerball drawings since the last jackpot winner.
The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
What will the jackpot look like for the next Powerball drawing?
According to My Twin Tiers, the next jackpot is estimated to be $800 million dollars.
Those who take their winnings through annuity, which means they’ll get payments every year for 29 years, will see that amount.
The cash option, which most people take, would be worth $383.7 million dollars after taxes.
The largest jackpot ever was worth $1.586 billion dollars in 2016. Three powerball ticket holders won this prize.
45 states play the game including Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
