Once again, no one picked the all the winning numbers in Wednesday night's huge Powerball jackpot. That means your dreams of becoming a millionaire are still real.

The numbers drawn were 3, 21, 45, 53, 56, and the Powerball was 22.

Saturday's jackpot is now up to $750 million.

Before taxes, that comes out to about $428 million if you choose the lump sum payout.

This is the fourth largest jackpot in lottery history.

The last time anyone won Powerball was back in August. A winning ticket was sold in New York state. That one was worth about $245 million.

Each Powerball ticket is $2. The game is played in 44 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The largest Powerball jackpot of $1.586 billion was split three ways in January of 2016.

You can catch the next Powerball drawing on WNEP Saturday night at 11.
