A $255 million Powerball jackpot drawing was held Wednesday night.

The winning Powerball numbers are 14, 20, 42, 49, 66. The Powerball was 5.

No one has hit the jackpot since a Pennsylvania couple who opted to remain anonymous won a $121.6 million drawing on Dec. 17 with a ticket bought in Selbyville, Del. Since then, the top prize for the twice-weekly Powerball drawing has rolled over 14 times.

Though there was no jackpot winning ticket sold for the last drawing on Saturday, one sold at a convenience store in Monmouth County matched five numbers and is worth $1 million. A ticket sold in Texas is worth $2 million since the player spent an extra $1 to exercise the Power Play option.

The winning numbers for the $229 million drawing were 613161752. The Powerball was 25.

Last year ended with seven Powerball jackpots being won, down from 12 in 2015.
