Days after a $1.573 billion jackpot was awarded to someone in South Carolina via the Mega Millions drawing, the Powerball is still searching for a winner.

No one won Wednesday’s $620 million jackpot, the third-largest top prize in the lottery’s history, and the sixth-highest in US history.

The jackpot now increases to $750 million for Saturday’s drawing. That number is expected to increase before drawing time.

Here were the winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing. 

56-53-45-21-03 Powerball: 22

Powerball is played in 44 states, DC, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Powerball consists of five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls; then select one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

Those who don’t match all six numbers could still win a prize. Matching the Powerball is worth at least $4. Matching every number but the red Powerball is worth at least $1 million.
