The Powerball jackpot sat at $730 million for the drawing Wednesday night. A winning ticket was sold in Maryland, pushing the new jackpot to an estimated $20 million for the next drawing Saturday.

The jackpot was the fourth-largest Powerball prize ever, and it came only a day after nobody won the even-larger Mega Millions prize, which now stands at $970 million.

Winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22.

Earlier this week, the Illinois Lottery said a $50,000 winning ticket was drawn Jan. 13 from Mariano’s at 3020 Wolf Rd. in Westchester. A winning ticket for $1 million was also drawn Jan. 16 at the Circle K at 1300 Carbon St. in Marion, Illinois.
