While there was no grand prize victor, three players matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million.

A roughly $430 million jackpot was up for grabs in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $510 million.

The current jackpot would be the eighth largest in US history, and the fifth largest Powerball jackpot ever.

Overall, there were 2,621,664 winners in the drawing who won at least $4 each.

The current jackpot would be the 8th largest USA lottery prize of all time.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Matching five numbers regularly nets the victor $1 million without the multiplier.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Powerball website.

Thursday's Fantasy 5 jackpot is an estimated $191,000.
