The next Powerball jackpot was expected to climb to $400 million – one of the largest prizes in the game’s history – after no one matched all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing.
More than 2 million players won prizes totaling a combined $20.8 million in the Jan. 2 game, according to Powerball’s website.
One lucky person in Pennsylvania took home a $ 2 million prize; three players, including one in California, won $1 million apiece.
The winning numbers were 5-6-15-29-42, and the Powerball number 10.
The next drawing was scheduled for Wednesday evening, at which time the grand prize was estimated to be $400 million. If that figure holds, a one-time cash prize would be worth about $244 million, according to the website.
Players have a roughly 1 in 292 million chance of selecting the jackpot-winning numbers, according to Powerball.
The last time a jackpot in the game reached this high was back in Feb. 2015, when three winning tickets split a grand prize of $564 million. The top prize in the game’s history — $590.5 million – was won in May 2013.
Powerball is played in California and 43 other states, along with Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
