Nobody Hits Powerball Jackpot

Millions of Powerball players were disappointed Wednesday night when none of them hit the $193.5 million jackpot — but the next drawing could be worth nearly $300 million.

Joe Mahoney of the Multi-State Lottery Association said Thursday that while no one won the jackpot, more than one million people will get prizes for matching some of the winning numbers: 2-28-30-36-39 and Powerball 10.

Officials guess that Saturday's drawing will be at least $280 million, Mahoney said.

"And that's a conservative estimate at this point," he said.
