CHICAGO - There were no winning tickets sold in Saturday's Powerball drawing.  The  jackpot has now rolled over to $450 million dollars for Wednesday's drawing.

The jackpot surged to $394.5 million Saturday night just before the winning numbers were drawn.

That was the sixth largest jackpot in the game's history.

It initially climbed to $360 million after no tickets matched all six numbers in Wednesday night's drawing.

By late Friday morning, the jackpot increased again by $20 million to $380 million.

The winning numbers in Saturday evening's drawing were 5-10-21-34-58, with a Powerball of 33 and Power Play of 5.

Powerball is played in Illinois and 42 other states, along with Washington D.C.,  Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of matching all six numbers in the game are 1 in about 175 million.

The record U.S. lottery prize of $656 million was a Mega Millions jackpot awarded in March 2012. That prize was split among winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. The largest Powerball jackpot ever was $591 million, won May 18, 2013.

Powerball tickets cost $2 and can be purchased up to an hour before the drawing, which is 9:59 p.m. CST every Wednesday and Saturday.  The drawing can be seen live on WGN-TV.
