Powerball jackpot grows to $171 million

CLEVELAND (AP) - Ohio has no big winners from the latest Powerball drawing, and no one nationwide took the $144 million jackpot in the multistate lottery game.

It will grow to $171 million for the next drawing, on Saturday. Wednesday's Powerball numbers were: 4, 23, 31, 42 and 50.

The Powerball was 23, and the Power Play was 2. The Ohio Lottery says the state had no tickets good for the second- and third-place prizes of $200,000 and $10,000.

Forty-five tickets sold in Ohio matched four numbers to win $100 each.
