No one won the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, making the new top prize for Saturday's drawing $620 million.

Tickets worth $2 million were sold in Michigan, Ohio and Oklahoma, and several winning tickets sold in North Carolina had smaller prizes. The largest was $50,000.

Wednesday night marked the 39th consecutive draw without a jackpot winner. It's the highest jackpot since Jan. 20, when the prize was $731 million.

Powerball drawings are held Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11 p.m. on WRAL.

The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
