Des Moines, Iowa (AP) Saturday's Powerball jackpot will be worth an estimated $300 million, since no one matched all six of the numbers to win last night's drawing.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 12-37-40-48-and-50. The Powerball was 37 and the multiplier was 4.

Two power play tickets purchased in Montana and North Carolina matched the first five numbers only to win $800,000.

Colorado's top prize was $200,000 for a non-power play ticket that also matched five numbers.

Powerball was created in 1992 and launched in Colorado in 2001.

It's now played in 29 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands
