MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The multi-state Powerball lottery has grown to an estimated $350 million for the drawing on Wednesday, May 15th. The estimated cash value of the jackpot is $222.8 million.

The prize swelled after nobody picked all of the winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing. The winning numbers on Saturday were: 6, 13, 19 23, 43 and the Powerball was 16.

Powerball is a combined large jackpot game which is played in 42 states. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 9:59 p.m., five white balls are drawn from a drum with 59 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red balls.

The odds of winning the top prize in the Powerball lottery are 1 in 175,223,510. The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1 million paid in cash. But you have a 1 in 55 chance of winning of $4.
