There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is expected to grow to $100 million.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, were sold in Arkansas and Pennsylvania and are each worth $1 million, the Multi- State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The numbers drawn tonight were 2, 22, 32, 45, 56 and the Powerball number was 12. The estimated jackpot was $100 million.

The drawing was the seventh since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in 175,223,510, according to the Powerball website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 31.85.

The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
