WASHINGTON, May 5 (UPI) -- No one won in Wednesday's $361.5 million Powerball lottery jackpot drawing, meaning the coveted financial reward will grow to $415 million.

The winning numbers announced Wednesday were 47- 69-30-66-57. The Powerball was 3. No one has won the full jackpot since March 2 and if no one wins in Saturday's drawing the jackpot is expected continue to grow.

Nearly 1,873,000 people won non-jackpot prizes on Wednesday worth $15,436,573. There were two Match 5 winners who won $1 million. Winning the grand prize requires matching all five numbers, regardless of order, and the red Powerball number.

Although Saturday's grand prize would make any winner smile, it is dwarfed by January's historic $1.5 billion Powerball lottery -- the biggest in history, anywhere on the globe. Previously, the largest jackpot in U.S. history was $656 million and the largest Powerball was $590.5 million.
