Nobody won Saturday night's Powerball jackpot so the top prize will now increase to about $425 million for the next drawing on Wednesday, the largest jackpot ever for the game.

The numbers drawn were 22-32-37-44-50 and the Powerball was 34.

Iowa Lottery spokeswoman Mary Neubauer said sales were strong over the holiday week for Saturday's drawing, which was estimated at $325 million before the numbers were picked. That was the fourth-largest jackpot in the game's history.

Neubauer said the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing could go even higher than the estimated $425 million because sales pick up in the days before record drawings.

The previous top Powerball prize was $365 million, won in 2006 by ConAgra Foods workers in Lincoln.
