No Powerball winner picked Wednesday night
No one won the Powerball lottery Wednesday night, so the jackpot is estimated to rise to $675 million by Saturday's drawing.

The estimated jackpot for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing soared to $524 million thanks to strong sales, but no one picked all six winning numbers.

Saturday's jackpot will be an estimated $675 million -- the largest lottery jackpot in US history. The previous largest jackpot was $656 million in the Mega Millions jackpot in 2012.

The winning Powerball numbers are: 2, 11, 47, 62, 63 and the Powerball is 17.
