No jackpot winning Powerball tickets sold in $500 million drawing

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 $675 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 $413.1 million.

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