DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- People across the country are hoping to pick the six winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday night -- and the $320 million jackpot that comes with them.

No ticket matched all the numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.

Neil Watson with the Nebraska Lottery says the current estimated jackpot of $320 million seems to be holding strong. The lump-sum cash option is $198.3 million.

Lottery officials say the current jackpot is the sixth highest in history. No one has won the Powerball jackpot since early February.

The holders of two winning tickets -- one purchased in Arizona and the other in Missouri -- shared $587.5 million in November, the largest Powerball jackpot in history.

Powerball is played in 42 States, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
