The estimated $524 million Powerball jackpot had no winner.

The winning numbers were 2, 11, 47, 62 and 63, and Powerball of 17, CBS News reports.

This would mean that Saturday’s jackpot would be a whopping $675 million, which will be the record-breaking largest jackpot in the history of the United States, with the previous most being $656 million in 2012.

The prize reached $524 million from $450 million Wednesday night, as reported by ABC News. It was the fourth highest prize in history. According to the Powerball website, the payout would have amounted to more than $300 million, before taxes, in cash value.
