No winner: Powerball jackpot grows to $478 million

Posted at 12:59 AM, Jul 28, 2016
There were no winners in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, bringing the jackpot to a whopping $478 million, USA Today reports.
The numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65, and 68. The Powerball is 24.
Before the drawing, the jackpot sat at $422 million after nearly three months without a winner. The next drawing is Saturday. 
But the enormous payout is far from hitting the world record of nearly $1.6 billion, which was won in a mid-January drawing that packed lottery retailers across the nation.
The odds of winning the big prize are a depressing 292.2 million-to-1, according to experts.
