Posted at 6:23 AM, Mar 21, 2019

Wednesday's $550 million Powerball drawing produced no winners, and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing has increased to an estimated $625 million.

That number will likely increase before Saturday's drawing takes place.

According to Powerball's website, there was one person in South Carolina who matched five numbers plus the "power play" on Wednesday, winning $2 million. Four people in Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey and South Carolina matched five numbers, winning $1 million.

A $625 million jackpot would be the seventh largest lottery drawing in US history. The largest Powerball jackpot of $1.59 billion took place in 2016. A winning ticket for the second-highest lottery drawing at $1.4 billion was sold in October.
