Lottery officials say no jackpot winner was selected in the latest $317 million Powerball drawing.
Sue Dooley is the senior drawing manager for the Multi-State Lottery Association, which oversees Powerball. She says there will be another drawing Saturday after no one matched Wednesday's winning numbers.
Each drawing without a winner rolls the jackpot over and makes it more lucrative. The Powerball website shows the current estimated haul for the next drawing is $360 million.
Until Wednesday's drawing, there had been something of a big-time prize drought, with nearly a year passing since a jackpot above $300 million.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of matching all six numbers in the game are 1 in about 175 million.
