LOS ANGELES (CNS) - There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Wednesday evening's drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $119 million.

There were two tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number. The one sold in Pennsylvania was worth $2 million, because the player 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 in Missouri is worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 11, 19, 39, 44, 65 and the Powerball number was 7. The jackpot was $100 million.

The drawing was the seventh 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.
