Another Powerball frenzy is about to sweep the nation after Wednesday night's drawing failed to match a jackpot winner, pushing the prize to $317 million.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 11, 19, 33, 42, and 52, with a Powerball of 33. The next drawing is Saturday night.

Though no one hit big, one person in Pennsylvania struck for $2 million, according to Philly.com.

The new $317 million jackpot, which has a $176.3 million cash payout option, marks Powerball's 11th jackpot that exceeds $300 million. Five of those have been in the past 10 months.

Gloria MacKenzie, of Zephyrhills, Fla., claimed the largest Powerball jackpot ever in June — $590.5 million. She ultimately walked away with a lump sum of $370.9 million (or $278 million after taxes).

MacKenzie, 84, has stayed out of the public eye since winning her millions. Her only comments to reporters came in the form of a statement read by lottery officials on her behalf.

"While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket," MacKenzie said in the statement. "We are grateful with this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot. We hope that everyone would give us the opportunity to maintain our privacy for our family’s benefit."

The biggest jackpot in U.S. history was the Mega Millions' $656 million annuity, split by three winners in March 2012.
