No winner was announced in Saturday’s drawing for the Powerball jackpot, sending the top prize’s total worth to an estimated $550 million.

The drawing for that jackpot, figured to be the eighth-largest in Powerball’s history, will be held Wednesday. It features a cash option of an estimated $335 million, Powerball said in a news release Sunday.

The last winner of a Powerball jackpot was announced in December, when a New York man won nearly $300 million.

The largest Powerball jackpot, worth more than $1.5 billion, was split three ways in January 2016. Last October, two winners split a $687.8 million Powerball jackpot, the third-largest in the game’s history and fourth-largest prize in U.S. lottery history.
