Powerball Rolls Over, Jackpot Nears $200 Million
CHICAGO (CBS) — No one matched all the numbers in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing, and the grand prize for the multi-state lottery game grew to nearly $200 million.
The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 22 – 26 – 31 – 54 and 55, and the Power Ball number was 18.
The jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing was $165 million.
The closest anyone in Illinois came to the jackpot were the 106 players who either matched four of five numbers or matched three of five numbers and the Powerball, according to the Illinois Lottery.
Those players will each collect $100.
The next Powerball drawing, with a jackpot of $191 million, will be held on Saturday night.
