CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

No one matched all the numbers drawn in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, and the grand prize for the multi-state lottery game grew to nearly $300 million.

The winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing were: 08 - 24 - 39 - 49 and 59, and the Power Ball number was 05. The grand prize for Wednesday night's game was $235 million.

The closest anyone in Illinois came to the grand prize were the three people who matched four of five numbers and the Power Ball, according to the Illinois Lottery. They will each receive $10,000.

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Saturday. The estimated grand prize for that drawing is $290 million.
