Powerball now has a jackpot worth $305 million after no winning numbers were claimed on Saturday, and everyone is experiencing lotto-fever in several states before August 15.

The lucky numbers that were drawn Saturday at 11 p.m.: 4, 13, 39, 46 and 51.

The Powerball selected was 1.

In addition, no players have matched all the winning numbers during the past six weeks.

There has been no big Powerball jackpot winner since June 23, when a couple from Seymour, Conn., won $60 million.

For the last drawing, Wednesday night, three tickets sold in New Jersey contained five numbers, but not the Powerball, and are worth $1 million apiece before taxes.

Tickets sold in the following states also matched five numbers: Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma and Oregon. One ticket holder in Washington, D.C., also won $1 million.

Powerball is played in New Jersey, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania, along with 40 other states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
