SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, for Wednesday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery was sold at a gasoline station in San Diego and is worth $2,768,497, the California Lottery announced.

Other tickets with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number were sold in Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, New York, Texas and Virginia. They are all worth $1 million, except the one sold in Virginia, which is worth $2 million because the player utilized the Power Play option, where for an additional $1 per play, a ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, is worth $2 million.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers and the estimated jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is expected to grow to $640 million.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
