Powerball jackpot jumps to $760 million after no ticket matches winning numbers

(NEW YORK) — The Powerball jackpot has grown from an estimated $700 million to $760 million after no one matched all of the numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers drawn for Wednesday’s jackpot were: 4, 11, 38, 51, 68 and red Powerball 5. The power play was 3.

Wednesday’s drawing was one of two remaining Powerball drawings this year. The Powerball prize now rolls over to Saturday’s drawing.

Before Wednesday night, there had been 32 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner, Powerball said. The last jackpot was won on Oct. 11.

Wednesday’s prize was the fourth jackpot this year to exceed more than $500 million.

This year’s largest jackpot prize of $1.765 billion was won on Oct. 11 in California. The second largest prize this year of $1.08 billion was won on July 19 in California, according to Powerball.

Powerball tickets are $2 each play.

The game’s largest prize ever — $2.04 billion — was won on Nov. 7, 2022.
