One player did manage to pick the 5 white balls but not the PowerBall, earning them $2 million.

Powerball fever is heating up again, thanks to a lottery jackpot that is now over $400 million.

There have been 22 consecutive drawings without a victor since a ticket sold in NY matched all six numbers in the $294 million Powerball jackpot drawing on December 26. The estimated cash value for Saturday's drawing is $300.2 million. The third ticket, sold in Florida, is worth $2 million because the purchaser paid extra for the Power Play. Two of those tickets were sold in NY and are worth $1 million each. Players select five white numbers from (1 to 69) and one red ball (1 to 26).

· In Michigan, one ticket sold won $50,000.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1.
