Dec. 27 (UPI) -- The Powerball jackpot grew to $416 million after no winning numbers were drawn on Christmas Day.

Saturday's drawing marked the 34th consecutive drawing without a first-prize winner. The last winning ticket was drawn on Oct. 4 with a single ticket hitting the $700 million grand prize.

They were sold at Guinta's Meat Farms in Ronkonkoma, MAB Finer Wines and Spirits in East Meadow, King's Laurelton C-town Store in Springfield Gardens and Smoke 4 Less in Fishkill.
