No winner in Powerball drawing, jackpot soars to $440 million

No Powerball tickets matched all six numbers for Saturday night's $384 million grand prize drawing, sending next week's jackpot in the United States surging to $440 million, lottery officials said.

The estimated $440 million prize, with a cash value of $278 million, marks the ninth largest jackpot in the game's history, according to figures on the Powerball website.

The cash value figure is the estimated total if a winner selects one lump-sum payment, rather than the other option of taking annual payments over 30 years.

Both estimated totals are before any taxes are assessed.

The winning numbers for Saturday's drawing were: 28, 36, 41, 51, 58 and the Powerball of 24.
