If you bought a Powerball ticket for Saturday's drawing hoping for the jackpot, you'll have to try again.

No one hit the $290 million jackpot on Saturday, and it's now worth a whopping $400 million.

It's not the largest lottery jackpot in history. That was a $590 million Mega Millions drawing, which was won by an 84-year-old Florida woman.

Someone who bought a ticket in Bucks County matched five numbers but not the Powerball, and won a million dollars.

Lottery officials said the winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven at 1205 E. Lincoln Highway in Langhorne.

The winning numbers Saturday were 21, 24, 36, 42 and 45; the Powerball was 15.
The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.

The next drawing is scheduled for Wednesday.
