ATLANTA (AP) — The Powerball jackpot has grown to $305 million for Wednesday’s drawing.

The prize grew after no one matched all six numbers in the multi-state lottery drawing Saturday night. The winning numbers were: 4, 13, 39, 46 and 51. The Powerball was 1.

Though no one hit the jackpot, several people made out nicely. Five Powerball tickets won $1 million because they matched five of the six winning numbers, according to the official Powerball website. The million-dollar tickets were sold in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that no one has won big in Powerball since June 23 when a couple from Connecticut won $60 million.
