The Powerball jackpot is now a whopping $400 million.

No one picked all six winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing. The next drawing is Wednesday night.

If only one ticket matches all six numbers, the winner will take home a little more than $230 million  in a lump sum, and the odds of that happening are about 1 in 175 million.

The biggest single-winner Powerball jackpot of $590 million was claimed in June by an 84-year-old Florida woman.

The largest jackpot in history stands at $656 million in March of 2012. That prize was split among winners in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois.
