LOS ANGELES (CNS) – There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in tonight’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to grow to $91 million.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Puerto Rico and is worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 6, 10, 31, 37, 44 and the Powerball number was 23. The jackpot was $82 million.

The drawing was the ninth since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
