    No Jackpot-Winning Powerball Tickets Sold, Raising Drawing to $700 Million

    Here's the bad news: You didn't win the monster Powerball jackpot Wednesday night.

    The good news: Neither did anyone else.

    That means the jackpot will roll over to an estimated $700 million — the largest lottery prize in U.S. history, according to Texas Lottery spokesperson Kelly Cripe — when it's drawn again Saturday night.

    The numbers drawn in Wednesday night's $500 million jackpot were 2, 11, 47, 62 and 63. The Powerball number is 17, with a multiplier of 3.

    The $500 million prize ranked as the sixth largest offered in North America and the biggest since a $564.1 million Powerball prize shared by players from North Carolina, Texas and Puerto Rico last February.

    A winner of Wednesday's jackpot could have claimed the pre-tax $500 million prize through an annuity over 29 years or in a single pre-tax lump-sum payout of $306 million. The estimated lump-sum payout for Saturday's jackpot is now $$428 million.

    Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

    I never play. Sounds like a good time to get a couple tickets though ;)

    I really wish I wasn't so sick so I could go get some tickets. I hope no one wins until I can.
