The Powerball drawing on Wednesday night was estimated to be worth $168.5 million with a cash value of $100.1 million. There were no grand prize winners from the drawing, which means the jackpot will continue to grow.

The winning lottery numbers drawn on Wednesday were 11, 41, 56, 57, 63 with a red Powerball of 2. The Power Play was 2X.

Since the jackpot went unclaimed, the next Powerball drawing will take place on Saturday. The jackpot will reach an estimated $184 million, with a $109.3 million cash option.

Although there was no grand prize winner for the latest Powerball drawing, one player became an instant millionaire. A ticket holder from California hit the Match 5 and won $1 million. If the player would have hit the Match 5 with a Power Play purchase, they would have won $2 million.

Several smaller monetary prizes also resulted from the Wednesday Powerball drawing. There were seven players who hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball and won $50,000 apiece.

Meanwhile, there were only three players who managed to hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball with a Power Play, putting their winnings at $100,000 each.

The other monetary prizes from the latest lottery drawing ranged between $4 and $200. A total of 392,704 won prizes from the Wednesday jackpot.

The latest drawing comes after a player in South Carolina claimed a $500,000 winning ticket. The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, purchased the ticket at a Publix in Greenville.

However, the man was unaware of how much money he won until lottery officials in Columbia showed him the value of his prize. “I just stared at the amount,” he said. “I really had no idea how much I won.”

Jackpot winners must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. Five numbers must be selected from 1 to 69 for the white balls, and a number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

There is a 1 in 292.2 million chance of winning the Powerball jackpot.
