The Powerball jackpot climbed to $800 million after no ticket matched all winning numbers in Wednesday’s drawing


The Powerball jackpot soared to a whopping $800 million after Wednesday night’s drawing yielded no grand prize winning ticket matching all six numbers, the lottery agency said.

The jackpot in Wednesday’s drawing was $700 million and the winning numbers were 19, 36, 37, 46, 56 with a Powerball of 24.

The $800 million prize is the second-largest Powerball jackpot and fifth-largest US lottery jackpot of all time, according to a Powerball news release. Its cash value is $383.7 million, the lottery said. The next drawing is Saturday.

There have now been 36 drawings in a row with no grand prize winner, the lottery said.

But unfortunately for ticket buyers, the odds of winning the massive prize are just 1 in 292.2 million.

The biggest Powerball jackpot of all time was $1.586 billion in January 2016, per the release.
