The Powerball lottery jackpot is growing to an estimated $495 million for Saturday's drawing

The lottery is still looking for its first jackpot victor of 2019 because no one matched all six of the winning numbers drawn Wednesday night. That total places the current jackpot as the 14th largest in history and the 8th largest Powerball jackpot ever.

The Powerball jackpot is nearing half a billion dollars and Missouri has a little bit of lady luck on its side.

That means the drawing on Saturday, Mar. 16 will be worth $495 million with a cash option of $300.2 million.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's drawing were: 18, 36, 45, 47, 69.

· There were 1,468,589 tickets sold in the drawing that won at least $4.

Players must select 5 numbers from 1-69 and one Powerball number between 1-26 to play. The Power Play multiplier was three.

The Rolling Cash 5 jackpot for the next drawing is $181,000 for hitting all five numbers and the odds of winning are 1-in-575,757.

The Wednesday, March 13th jackpot is now up to an estimated $448 million.

Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Statistically, there's a one in 292 million chance of matching all six numbers.

The drawings are held at 10:59 p.m.

Two tickets in NY matched the five white balls but not the Powerball to win $1 million, according to a lottery press release.
