No Powerball Winner Means Jackpot Swells to $475M

William Thomas Cain/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Powerball jackpot has soared to $475 million after no tickets matched Wednesday night's drawing.

The new jackpot ranks as the second-largest for Powerball and third biggest overall.  The cash option is an estimated $302.4 million and the next drawing is Saturday night.

The winning numbers for the $360 million jackpot were 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a Powerball of 32.  

But not everyone walked away from the drawing a loser.  Tickets in Delaware and Pennsylvania won $5 million and there were 16 states that had $1 million winners, according to Powerball's website.

Powerball's largest jackpot to date was $587.5 million.  It was awarded last November when a couple from Dearborn, Mo., and a man from Fountain Hills, Ariz., split the winnings.

The last big Powerball jackpot that made headlines was claimed in March when Pedro Quezada, 44, of New Jersey cashed his ticket worth a cool $338 million.
