ATLANTA (WXIA) -- After no one hit all the numbers in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, the jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing is up to $110 million for a single annuitized winner.

The last winning numbers drawn in the multi-state game were pulled on December 26. A single player in Florida took home a $50 million jackpot in that drawing.

Powerball costs $2 for a single play. The Power Play multiplier, which can add to a jackpot winner's earnings, costs an extra $1 per game. Winners can elect a set of 30 payments over 29 years, or a lump sum cash option payment, which for Wednesday would pay out an estimated $70 million.

The multi-state game is played in 44 jurisdictions across the United States and the US Virgin Islands.
