After nobody won the Saturday night's Powerball jackpot, the prize has grown to $425 million for Wednesday.

The $425 million prize is the largest the game has ever seen.

The Mega Millions jackpot hit a high of $656 million earlier this year, which was the highest for that game.

Saturday's drawing had more than 56,000 winning tickets that were purchased from Indiana retailers, according to a Hoosier Lottery news release.

More than 250 of those tickets matched four of the winning six numbers of: 22-32-37-44-50 and the Powerball 34.

Tickets can be purchased until 8:58 p.m. Wednesday night locally for a chance to be included in the drawing.

Powerball tickets cost $2 with the option to upgrade for a $1 Powerplay bonus. The Powerplay adds value to any winning ticket and must be purchased at the same time as the Powerball ticket.
