Powerball's Estimated Jackpot Hits $478M

The next drawing will be Saturday

No one has matched the jackpot-winning numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, and the prize has increased to an estimated $478 million.

The next drawing will be Saturday. Nearly three months have passed without a winner of the big prize. If anyone matches the five balls and red Powerball in the drawing, it will be the game's first jackpot winner since May 7. 

The numbers drawn on Wednesday night were 10, 47, 50, 65, 68 with a Powerball of 24.  

The chance of winning the Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million-to-1. But players have much better odds, of about 1 in 25, of winning smaller prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million.
