MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Nobody won the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, so it goes up to $247 million for Saturday.
Nobody from Wisconsin won the second or third prizes either. Eight tickets won $300 each, by having the Power Play multiplier of three and matching either four regular numbers or three plus the Powerball.
Almost 13,700 Wisconsin players won smaller prizes. Wednesday night's numbers were 8, 17, 32, 57, and 59. The Powerball was 24.
Saturday's jackpot is the largest since last September 18th, when a player in South Carolina won $399 million. Saturday's cash option is just over $142 million.
In Mega Millions, the top prize is at $107 million for Friday night.
