We know you didn't win Wednesday's $500 million Powerball jackpot, but there were over 170,000 winning tickets sold in Arizona.
In fact, Arizona Lottery officials said Thursday that four tickets are worth $50,000 each. Those four tickets matched four numbers, including the Powerball.
In case you forgot, Wednesday's numbers were: 2, 11, 47, 62, 63. Powerball: 17.
More than 7.1 million winning tickets were sold nation-wide for Wednesday's draw. Fourteen of those tickets are worth $1 million and one is worth $2 million. Sadly, none of those tickets were sold in Arizona.
Breakdown of winners in Arizona:
- Matched 4 numbers + Powerball: 4
- Matched 4 numbers: 121
- Matched 3 number + Powerball: 302
- Matched 3 numbers: 7,122
- Matched 2 numbers + Powerball: 6,165

Because no one won the huge jackpot, Saturday's drawing has soared to a whopping $700 million, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The odds for having a winning ticket worth between $4 and $1 million are one in 24.87.
If you plan on playing in Saturday's drawing, good luck because you're probably going to need it.
