After lottery hopefuls failed to match all winning six numbers in the Powerball drawing on Saturday night, the jackpot has swollen to $235 million this week.

Although someone in New Jersey won more than $1 million for matching five numbers, no one has matched all of the numbers since June 2, according to The Associated Press.

Milwaukee-based Fox affiliate WITI notes that the current odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 175,223,510.

The last person to win big in the Powerball was Gloria MacKenzie, who collected the biggest-ever single jackpot ($590.5 million) back in May.
