LOS ANGELES (CNS) - There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $620 million.
There were eight tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.
The ones sold in Michigan, Ohio and Oklahoma are each worth $2 million because the players utilized the Power Play option, where for an additional $1 per play, a ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, is worth $2 million.
The one sold at a convenience store in Yuba City near Sacramento is worth $1,361,359 because California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.
The ones sold in Florida, Indiana, New York and Wisconsin are each worth $1 million.
The numbers drawn Wednesday were 2, 7, 11, 17, 32 and the Powerball number was 11. The jackpot was $570 million.
The drawing was the 38th since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.
The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
