FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — Feeling lucky? The Powerball jackpot has swelled to more than $403 million for Wednesday's drawing.

Over 132,000 winning Powerball tickets were sold over Presidents Day weekend — but none won the grand prize jackpot of $361 million.

Because no one won the grand prize, the jackpot increased another $54 million, putting Wednesday’s jackpot at an estimated $403 million, according to Connecticut State Lottery officials.

Lottery officials remind Powerball players to double-check their tickets, even if they don’t win the jackpot. There is a million-dollar prize for matching the first five numbers. The chance of winning the grand prize is 1 in 292,201,338, while the chance of matching the first five numbers is 1 in 11,688,054.

Saturday's winning numbers were 3-7-9-31-33, with a Powerball of 20. The next drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22. If no one claims the jackpot, it will continue to grow and there will be another drawing Saturday.

Want to try your luck? You can purchase tickets up until 10 p.m. on the night of a drawing.

Powerball tickets can be purchased in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington DC, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
