A lottery official says there is no jackpot winner in the drawing for a Powerball prize worth an estimated $500 million.
Kelly Cripe, a spokeswoman for the Texas Lottery, says no one matched the numbers drawn Wednesday night. She says that means the estimated prize for Saturday's drawing is $675 million, the largest jackpot of any lottery game in U.S. history.
Wednesday's jackpot was 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.
U.S. & World
Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
