(WTNH) — The winning numbers for the estimated $900 million Powerball jackpot have been drawn. They are: 16, 19, 32, 34, 57, and Powerball 13.

The Powerball jackpot has been growing since Nov. 4, 2015, the last time the jackpot was hit.

No one won Wednesday’s jackpot of more than $500 million, pushing Saturday’s prize to $900 million, the largest ever.

As the jackpot has grown, ticket sales have risen. Officials say there were $352 million in sales on Friday. They expected $400 million more in sales on Saturday.

With more people playing, officials say it’s increasingly likely that someone has a ticket with all the above numbers. If not, Wednesday’s jackpot will surely be more than $1 billion.
