Lottery officials have announced that no ticket matched all six multi-state Powerball numbers following last night's drawing for a record nearly 950 million U.S. dollar jackpot.

This has boosted the expected payout for the next drawing on Wednesday to 1.3 billion dollars.

Many statisticians believe that the odds to win the largest lottery prize in U.S. history were one in over 290 million.

The last Powerball jackpot winner was in November when a ticket holder from Tennessee claimed over 144 million dollars.

The previous record North American lottery jackpot payout was in March 2012, when 656 million dollars was won in a Mega Millions draw.
