There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to grow to $130 million.

There was one ticket sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, in Florida and is worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 39, 41, 54, 59, 62 and the Powerball number was 12. The jackpot was $119 million.

The drawing was the 10th since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
