No ticket matched the numbers drawn for Wednesday’s Powerball game, so the jackpot climbed $22 million, to $333 million, according to the New York Lottery.

Nationwide, two tickets matched the numbers 3, 15, 29, 54 and 57 but missed out on the Powerball of 10.

Those tickets, sold in Michigan and Indiana, are worth $1 million each.

Saturday’s jackpot is the 13th largest in the game’s history but well shy of the biggest Powerball prize — $1.586 billion from this past January.

Lump sump payout for Saturday’s grand prize, before taxes, is $237 million.
