RICHMOND, Va. -- Powerball has announced there were no winning jackpot tickets sold for its $500 million drawing on Wednesday. But, more than 191,000 tickets sold in Virginia won prizes, according to the Virginia lottery. Of those money-winning tickets,  two were worth $50,000.

The Powerball numbers drawn were 2, 11, 47, 62, 63 and 17.

One of the $50,000 tickets was sold at the Ashbrook Shell station on Ashbrook Commons Plaza in Ashburn, Virginia. The other was sold at a7 -Eleven, on Van Buren Street, in Herndon, Virginia.

Since no one matched all the Powerball numbers, the jackpot for Saturday's drawing now sits at $675 million.

"Virginia Lottery officials expect to sell about 2.7 million Powerball tickets in the Commonwealth on Saturday alone," a Virginia Lottery spokesperson said. "At peak times on Saturday, the Virginia Lottery expects to sell 5,400 Powerball tickets per minute across Virginia."

The $675 million jackpot will be the biggest in U.S. history, topping a March 2012 jackpot of $656 million.

The grand prize hit $400 million over the weekend after another winner-less drawing on Saturday, and then hit $450 million on Tuesday. It climbed another $50 million since Tuesday morning, according to lottery officials.

An estimated 300 million new tickets purchased between Sunday and Wednesday.

"This is more than 10 times what we see when the jackpot is at the lower levels," Texas Lottery spokesperson Kelly Cripe said Tuesday when it stood at $450 million.

Nobody has matched all six numbers in one of the bi-weekly Powerball drawings since Nov. 7, 2015. That's 17 drawings with no winner.

Powerball is sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
