Powerball's estimated jackpot hits $478 million

No one has matched the jackpot-winning numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, and the prize has increased to an estimated $478 million.



The numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65, and 68. The Powerball is 24.



The next drawing will be Saturday. The cash value option is estimated to be $330.6 millon. Nearly three months have passed without a winner of the big prize.



The chance of winning the Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million-to-1. But players have much better odds, of about 1 in 25, of winning smaller prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million.
