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 $116 million.

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

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 6, 28, 44, 59, 61 and the Powerball number was 21. The jackpot was $100 million.

The drawing was the eighth 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, which conducts the game. 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.
