Lotto: Saturday's $38m Powerball rolls over, $43m up for grabs in Wednesday's draw

Lotto's Powerball prize has catapulted to a staggering $43 million - meaning Wednesday's draw may be one for the history books. 

Wednesday's prospective winner may be walking away with the second-largest win in Lotto history.

Even more millions were added to the pot after an eye-watering $38 million Powerball went unclaimed in Saturday's draw. 

The winning numbers were 4, 7, 11, 16, 23 and 28. The Bonus ball was 36 and the Powerball number was 5. 

Meanwhile seven first division winners will be waking up with an extra $142,857 in their bank accounts, while one Stratford player has pocketed a cool $400,000 for hitting the Strike Four jackpot. The ticket was sold at New World Stratford.

Lotto's head of communications, Marie Winfield, says only one player has ever won a figure as high as Wednesday's Powerball prize.
