The Powerball jackpot will grow to an estimated $25 million for Wednesday after no one matched all six of the numbers drawn over the weekend.
Saturday's winning numbers were 5-16-25-30-and-49. The Powerball was 39 and the multiplier was 5. Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared the $20 million jackpot.
A Power Play ticket sold in Louisiana matched the first five numbers only to win $1 million. Colorado's top prize was $50,000 for a Power Play ticket that matched the Powerball, plus four of the other numbers.
Powerball was created in 1992 and launched in Colorado in 2001. It's now played in 30 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
