Look for more company the next time you head out for a Powerball ticket. None of the tickets sold for the Powerball game Wednesday night matched all six numbers drawn, which were: 17-32-42-49-56 Powerball: 11 Power Play: 4

Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared the $150.2 million jackpot. The prize goes to an estimated $173 million for Saturday.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were eight of those. They were sold in: Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania (2) and Tennessee.

There were no Power Play Match 5 winners.
