June 1 (UPI) -- No one won Wednesday's $302 million Powerball lottery jackpot drawing, meaning the coveted financial reward has grown to $337 million.

The winning numbers announced Wednesday were 4-33-39-46-60. The Powerball was 6. No one has won the full jackpot since April 1; the next drawing is Saturday.

About 1,241,111 people won non-jackpot prizes on Wednesday worth a total of $7,845,308. There were no Match 5 winners. 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 happy, it falls short of the historic $1.5 billion Powerball lottery in January 2016 -- 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.
