CHICAGO (CBS) — Once again, no one matched all the numbers drawn in the Powerball drawing Wednesday night, and the grand prize for the multi-state lottery game jumped from $151 million to an estimated $176 million.
The winning numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing were: 14 – 16 – 32 – 47 and 52, and the Power Ball number was 16.
Among Illinois players, the closest anyone came to the grand prize were the 46 people who matched four of five numbers and the 68 people who matched three of five numbers and the Power Ball, according to the Illinois Lottery.
Each of these players will receive $100.
The next Powerball drawing will be held on Saturday night.
