No one won the multi-state Powerball on Wednesday as the jackpot grew to at least $415 million, vaulting it into the top 10 highest U.S. lottery prizes in history, officials said.
Seventeen consecutive drawings have produced no winner.
The odds of winning at Powerball are one in 292 million, which according to statistics experts is equivalent to flipping a coin 28 times and getting heads every time.
Lottery officials still waiting for one ticket holder to come forward from the record $1.6 billion Powerball drawing in January. It was sold in Chino Hills east of Los Angeles.
Under the rules of the game, the holder has a year from the time of the drawing to claim a prize. The two other winning tickets were sold in Tennessee and Florida, and those winners have come forward.
Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, as well as the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
The next drawing is scheduled for Saturday.
