No one hit the jackpot for Wednesday's Powerball drawing, so that means Saturday's drawing will be with an estimated $1.23 billion.

“As the jackpot swells, so does the probability of someone winning,” Powerball Product Group Chair Drew Svitko stated.

Saturday’s jackpot ranks as the fourth largest in the Powerball game and eighth largest among U.S. lottery jackpots, according to lottery officials.

The cash option for Saturday's Powerball will be just under $600 million.

“We expect to see more coverage of number combinations in Saturday’s drawing as more players buy tickets, Svitko added.

Wednesday's winning numbers were white balls 11, 38, 41, 62, 65 and red Powerball 15.

Despite there being no jackpot winner, nine tickets won $1 million. 64 tickets won $50,000 prizes and 17 tickets won $150,000 prizes.
