There was no winning ticket matching five numbers and the Powerball number from Wednesday’s drawing, setting up a buying frenzy that pushed Saturday’s jackpot up from an initial $475 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were:  02-11-26-34-41 and a  Powerball of  32.

One ticket worth $1 million was sold in New Jersey at Rachel’s Market in Pennsville.

There has been no Powerball winner since March 23 when a ticket worth $338 million was sold in Passaic to Pedro Quezada,

Saturday’s jackpot, the second largest in Powerball history, has a cash value of $350 million.

The entire world wants a chance at the big jackpot. “We start getting inquiries from Canada and Europe from people wanting to know if they can buy a ticket,” Powerball spokeswoman Mary Neubauer told ABC News. “They ask if they can FedEx us the money.” The answer is: “Sorry, no. You have to buy a ticket in a member state from a licensed retail location.”

Your odds of winning are the $550 million jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510 according to the Powerball website. There’s a 1 in 31.85 chance that a ticket holder could win something else including the smallest prize of $4.

The multi-state lottery is played in 42 states including New Jersey, New York and Delaware.

The largest Powerball jackpot ever offered was last March’s Mega Millions $656 million which was won by 3 ticket holders.
