WASHINGTON, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- No one won Wednesday's $317 million Powerball drawing, raising the value of Saturday's drawing to $380 million.

"We are elated with how high the jackpot has rolled," Karen Bach, director of budget, products, and communications for the Arizona Lottery told Yahoo! Finance.

The current Powerball jackpot is the sixth largest in the game's history and the largest winning pot in over a year.

If claimed as a lump sum, Saturday's jackpot would be worth roughly $256.8 million.

The last Powerball winner was an anonymous Washington state resident, who took home $90 million on Nov. 29.
