There are a lot of disappointed ticket buyers out there.

The Powerball lottery jackpot has climbed to an estimated $179 million jackpot. You can see the next drawing LIVE on 6abc, just before Action News at 11 on Saturday night.

None of the tickets sold for Wednesday night's drawing matched all six numbers drawn. Players matching all five numbers and the Powerball would have won or shared a $160 million jackpot. The next drawing is Saturday night.

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, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Missouri (2), North Carolina, Wisconsin.

The numbers drawn were: 1-17-25-43-51 Powerball: 38 Power Play: 3
