As a result, following the drawing on December 27, the Powerball jackpot will soar to $384 million, according to Chicago Tribune.

No one matched the winning numbers drawn for Wednesday's Powerball jackpot.

Snow, frigid cold are on tap
Local temperatures will remain below freezing most of the week with a blast of arctic air causing them to plummet this weekend. Across northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, mid-morning temperatures were in the negatives or single digits.

The Powerball lottery jackpot raised to $384 million after nobody won Wednesday's drawing, and the next one is Saturday night. They also cost $2 per ticket. The $306 million jackpot is already the 13th largest in Mega Millions history. It's those mega jackpots that prompt people who normally wouldn't buy a ticket to throw down $2 (or more) for a chance to win. The odds of winning the prize are 1 in 302 million. A ticket sold in Washington matched the five white balls and included the optional Megaplier, which means that player won the Match 5 second prize worth $4 million, officials said. Right now, the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries have a combined jackpot of almost $700 million. To win the jackpot, a player must match all six winning numbers in a drawing.

The Powerball game has a similar format.

Western Wall Train Station Will Be Named After Trump
Israel captured east Jerusalem, which includes the Old City, in 1967, and annexed it in a move not recognised internationally. Giving the name of Trump to this project will not give it any legitimacy.

The winning Powerball numbers were 3, 9, 16, 56, 60-and a Powerball number of 3.

The move was similar to one made by Powerball in October 2015.

All things considered, the situation is anything but favorable for players now that the two lotteries have harder chances for their separate jackpots. Powerball will next draw for a victor on Saturday evening. Mega Millions Drawings are at 9:59 PM (CT) every Tuesday and Friday.
