There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Saturday evening’s multi-state Powerball lottery and the jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing was expected to grow to $26 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 8, 15, 46, 56, 68 and the Powerball number was 3.

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

There was one ticket sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, in New Mexico and is worth $2 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

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.
