There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Wednesday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is expected to grow to $430 million.

Three tickets were sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, one each in Kentucky, Massachusetts and New Jersey. They are each worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

A Match 5 Winners Power Play ticket was sold in Florida and is worth $2 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 3, 57, 64, 68, 69 and the Powerball number was 15. The jackpot was $378 million.

The drawing was the 19th 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 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
