On Saturday night, Jan. 9, 2016, the Powerball jackpot was worth $949.8 million, but no one had a ticket matching the 5 numbers of 16, 19, 32, 34, 57 and the powerball number 13, according to the official Powerball website. Odds of having a 6 number winning ticket for any Powerball drawing is 1 in 292 million.

Thus, says the Powerball website, Wednesday’s jackpot should be at least $1.3 billion—and for those choosing a one-time cash payout, $806 million.

Powerball officials expected that on Saturday, Jan. 9th, nationwide sales of Powerball tickets would hit $400 million, the Associated Press reports.
