Saturday's Powerball jackpot has skyrocketed after nobody won Wednesday's drawing, reaching $550 million Thursday.

Wednesday's drawing was worth $360 million. The largest Powerball jackpot in history, $587.5 million, was drawn in November of 2012.

Three tickets sold in Virginia for Wednesday's draw - two worth $10,000 and another worth $1 million - are waiting to be claimed.

The two $10,000 tickets were sold in Alexandria and Manassas, while the $1 million winner was issued at a convenience store in Christianburg, just south of Blacksburg in western Virginia.
