DES MOINES, Iowa -
People across the country are hoping to pick the six winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday night — and the $320 million jackpot that comes with them.
No ticket matched all the numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.
Neil Watson with the Nebraska Lottery says the current estimated jackpot of $320 million seems to be holding strong. The lump-sum cash option is $198.3 million.
Lottery officials say the current jackpot is the sixth highest in history. No one has won the Powerball jackpot since early February.
The holders of two winning tickets — one purchased in Arizona and the other in Missouri — shared $587.5 million in November, the largest Powerball jackpot in history.
Powerball is played in 42 States, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
UPDATE: The winning Powerball numbers are 17, 29, 31, 52, 53. Powerball: 31
