(CBS) -- No one hit the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, so the money will roll over: A cool $400 million for the next drawing.
 
While hefty, the prize for Wednesday's drawing is still well below the record $590.5 million jackpot won in May by an 84-year-old Florida woman.

Gloria C. Mackenzie, of Zephyrhills, Fla., where the winning ticket was sold May 18, took a single lump sum payment of just over $370 million, Florida Lottery officials said. After paying 25 percent for federal income taxes, Mackenzie took home about $270 million, officials said.
 
She bought her winning Powerball ticket after another customer let her get ahead in line.

The winning numbers Saturday were 21, 24, 36, 42 and 45; the Powerball was 15.
 
The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.
 
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
