PHILADELPHIA -

There was no jackpot winner in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, and now comes word that the pot has gotten even larger than first thought.

After an earlier reported that swelled the estimated jackpot to a whopping $475 million, the latest news is that the jackpot is expected to be at least $550 million.

That's still the second-largest for Powerball, coming in just after a November jackpot worth $587.5 million was shared by two winners in Arizona and Missouri.

The Pennsylvania Lottery reports that Saturday's $550 million annuity value, or a $350.1 million cash prize, was increased by $75 million as a result of strong ticket sales.

Wednesday night's numbers were 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a Powerball of 32.

While no one matched all six numbers, there were still some big winners.

One person in Pennsylvania and one in Delaware won $2 million dollars in the Match 5 Powerplay.

And in New Jersey there was a $1-million winner in the Match 5.

The next drawing is Saturday.
