Did anyone win Saturday’s Powerball jackpot? The pot was estimated at $180 million with a cash option of $144.8 million, but no one walked away with the top prize this time.

This means the jackpot has rolled over to the next draw, which will be taking place on April 9 and will be worth $190 million. The draw will have a cash value of $156 million.

The winning numbers for yesterday’s lottery were 08, 31, 39, 40 and 43 and the Powerball was 04. While no one matched all six balls, including the Powerball, one player matched the first five balls, winning $2 million with the Power Play.

According to Powerball officials, another nine players matched four balls and the Powerball to win $50,000. Five of those players tripled their $50,000 winnings with the Power Play, walking away with $150,000.

More than 200 people matched 4 balls, winning $100, and 54 used the Power Play to triple the prize to $300. Another 631 players matched 3 balls and the Powerball to win $100 and 160 players tripled their winnings to $300 using the Power Play.

Meanwhile, there were more than 15,400 players who matched three balls to win $7, with 4,370 of those players tripling their winnings to $21 using the Power Play. There were more than 13,500 players who matched two balls and the Powerball to secure a $7 prize. The Power Play was used by 3,753 of those players to triple their winnings to $21.

More than 104,000 players matched one ball and the Powerball to win $4 and a little under 30,000 used the Power Play to boost the prize to $12. A further 246,782 players claimed $4 after matching the Powerball, with 69,095 of those players tripling the winnings to $12.

Players have a 1 in 24.87 chance of walking away with a prize in any $2 play. However, the odds for winning one of the top prizes are significantly lower. A player has a 1 in 292,201,338.00 chance of winning the jackpot, a 1 in 11,688,053.52 chance of matching 5 balls, and a 1 in 913,129.18 chance of matching 4 balls and the Powerball in any given game.

Tickets can be bought for $2 per play in 45 states as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday when they are broadcast live at 10:59 p.m. ET.

The Powerball jackpot increases with each draw until it is won. The last person to claim the top prize was Florida resident Sheryll Goedert, 61, managing member of Vacation Life LLC, who won the January 29 jackpot worth $396.9 million with an estimated cash value of $276.6 million.
