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 $550 million.

There were three tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. One sold in New Jersey is 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.

Another ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, sold in New Jersey and one sold in Michigan are each worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 6, 8, 15, 27, and 42 and the Powerball number was 10. The jackpot was $508 million.

The drawing was the 33rd 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. 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.
