Nobody matched all six Powerball numbers during Wednesday evening's drawings, so the jackpot rolls again.

The numbers drawn were: 03-57-64-68-69 and the Powerball number was 15.

Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington, N.C. On July 1, 2016.

Because no tickets matched all the Powerball numbers and the Power Play number drawn Wednesday night, the jackpot for the next drawing has jumped to an estimated $430 million.

Dreams of being a billionaire are now in reach, thanks to the Mega Millions. The odds for Mega Millions, meanwhile, is 302,575,350 to 1.

"The lottery officials who run Mega Millions tweaked the rules and odds of the game in October previous year to make jackpots pay out less frequently, spurring their monster growth", Ascienzo, who has studied lottery ticket purchase data from 2012 to 2018, tells FOX Business.
