For players in the Powerball multistate lottery game, the dream lives on. At least through another drawing Saturday.
No one had the winning numbers for Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot of $300 million, lottery officials said Thursday morning. So the jackpot for Saturday gets a bump to $334 million or a lump-sum payment of $205 million.
Two tickets nationwide had five numbers — 12, 36, 38, 54, 61 — but missed the Powerball of 22, according to the New York State Lottery website.
Those two tickets, sold in California and Pennsylvania, are worth $1 million each.
Saturday’s prize is far from the record Powerball jackpot of $590.5 million in May 2013 and the richest jackpot in U.S. history, $656 million in a March 2012 Mega Millions drawing.
