TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Powerball lottery jackpot continues to climb higher.
After no one matched all six numbers in Wednesday's drawing, the jackpot is growing to an estimated $349 million for Saturday's drawing. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $213.1 million.
Wednesday's numbers were 5, 28, 33, 38, 42 with 19 as the Powerball.
There have been 17 consecutive drawings without a winner since a ticket sold in Shelby, Delaware, matched all six numbers in the $121 million Powerball jackpot drawing on December 17.
There were a total of 122,340 winning tickets in Florida for Wednesday's drawing. One ticket sold in the state matched all five numbers and is worth $1 million. Two other tickets matched four numbers and the Powerball and are each worth $50,000.
Saturday's Powerball jackpot is the largest since one winning ticket was sold in Tennessee for a $420 million jackpot on November 26.
The deadline to buy tickets for Saturday night's drawing in Florida is 10:00 p.m. EST.
