RALEIGH, N.C. — The Powerball jackpot keeps on rolling as it now stands at $420 million for Saturday’s drawing.

The jackpot increased by over $30 million after nobody won the big prize in Wednesday’s drawing. A winner on Saturday night could claim the jackpot as a $420 million annuity or $202.1 million in cash.

In Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, a ticket in North Carolina matched four white balls and the red Powerball to win $50,000 for the fifth consecutive drawing. Wednesday’s win came from a ticket purchased at the Han-Dee Hugo’s on Durant Road in Raleigh.

“It’s great to see so many nice wins in a row for Powerball players here in North Carolina,” said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery. “Hopefully that good luck will continue on Saturday night. Good luck to everybody going for the jackpot.”
