After Saturday's Powerball drawing yielded no winner, the jackpot has increased to $215 million. That's an estimated $124.1 million cash prize.

Six players across the country matched the five white balls drawn, 05-12-15-27-38, but not the red Powerball 7.

Two tickets sold in New York and Ohio were Match 5 Power Play winners, and each won $2 million. Four Match 5 winners each won $1 million, and tickets were sold in Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia.

The next drawing is Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.

How it works: Powerball players select five white balls from a set of 59 numbers, plus a single red ball from a set of 35 numbers. They can pick their own numbers or choose computer-generated "quick picks."

To win the jackpot, a player must match all the numbers drawn. Tickets cost $2 and will be available until 9:59 p.m. Wednesday.

Tickets are sold in 43 states, and drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
