There was no jackpot winner in the Wednesday night drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery game, causing the grand prize to increase to an estimated $214 million for Saturday's drawing.

Wednesday was the 12th consecutive drawing without a jackpot winner. The jackpot run started October 6 as a $40 million jackpot.

The estimated cash value for the new jackpot is $143 million. After-tax cash and annuity prize amounts are reported state-by-state on the Jackpot Analysis page at USA Mega, a web site devoted to the Powerball and Mega Millions multi-state lottery games.

Players should note that jackpot amounts are conservative estimates provided by the lotteries, and are often somewhat higher by the time the drawing occurs.

Powerball is now played in 42 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.

The next Powerball drawing will take place Saturday night at 10:59 pm Eastern Time.

If I won the lottery, I would cash in all my winnings for Microsoft Points.

It's crazy how quickly these jackpots increase. The Powerball for this Saturday is already up to $425 million.
Since I live in Australia I bought my ticket online with www.thelotter.com

... and according to what they are saying it is going to increase even further before the draw.
I know stats are against me in all, but I'm really hoping I win this one.
