Lottery officials say nobody won the Powerball jackpot over the weekend so the top prize will now increase to about $425 million for the next drawing, the largest jackpot ever for the game.

Iowa Lottery spokeswoman Mary Neubauer said sales were strong for leading up to Saturday's drawing, with a jackpot estimated at $325 million. That was the fourth-largest jackpot in the game's history.

Neubauer says the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing could go even higher than the estimated $425 million because sales pick up in the days before record drawings.

The previous top Powerball prize was $365 million, won in 2006 by ConAgra Foods Workers in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Powerball numbers for Saturday were 22-32-37-44-50, and the Powerball was 34.

Tickets are two bucks each and drawings are on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
