June 8 (UPI) -- Saturday's Powerball jackpot stands at an estimated $435 million after no tickets matched the six numbers drawn Wednesday.

The single payment figure Saturday is an estimated $273.1 million.

The potential prize on Saturday will be the 11th largest in U.S. lottery history. There have been 18 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner since April 1, when a ticket sold in Arizona had all six chosen numbers. The jackpot was $60 million.

On Wednesday, four tickets, sold in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, California and North Carolina, had five correct numbers but not the Powerball number. The winning numbers Wednesday were 5, 21, 57, 66 and 69, with 13 as the Powerball. Holders of those numbers won prizes of at least $1 million; the North Carolina winner chose the Powerplay option, for an extra cost of $1, increasing the ticket's value to $2 million.

Powerball tickets, which cost $2 each, have odds of hitting the jackpot of about 292,201,338 to 1. There is an approximate chance of 1 in 11,688,053 to win at least $1 million.
