The Powerball jackpot is now up to $181 million after no one matched all six numbers in Wednesday's $158 million drawing.

One ticket buyer in south suburban Crete, Ill., matched five numbers and won a million dollars in last Saturday's $139 million drawing, but no one matched all six of the numbers.

The Powerball drawing takes place Wednesday and Saturday nights at 9:59 p.m. For more information, visit www.illinoislottery.com.
