There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is expected to grow to $161 million.

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

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 2, 9, 28, 36, 53 and the Powerball number was 4. The jackpot was $144 million.

The drawing was the 10th 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.
