Saturday's jackpot is the 21st largest in U.S. lottery history.

Wednesday's drawing again didn't yield a jackpot winner, but three $1 million tickets were purchased nationally. The second-prize tickets were sold in Iowa, Oregon and Texas.

A $50,000 ticket was sold at a gas station in New Jersey -- the Exxon on Route 34 in Aberdeen. That ticket matched four numbers plus the Powerball. 

Wednesday's winning numbers were: 12, 30, 36, 47 and 62. The Powerball drawn was 9.

The twice-weekly Powerball jackpot hasn't been hit since June 10 when Jeff Lindsay of Menifee, Calif. won the $447.8 million prize. The prize is the 10th-largest U.S. lottery jackpot. The jackpot has been won four times this year after being awarded seven times in 2016. 

The last second-prize, $1 million ticket sold in New Jersey was on July 12. A ticket bought at Country Farms on Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights matched five numbers but not the Powerball.

Powerball tickets, which have been sold in New Jersey since January 2010, cost $2 each. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win the second prize of at least $1 million.

The twice-weekly game is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
