Californians got their first shot at the multi-state Powerball lottery, but there was no winner for the estimated $60 million jackpot.

The winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing were 1, 36, 40, 52, 53 and the Powerball number was 20.

There were some smaller prizes though. One ticket with five of the numbers but missing the Powerball number was sold in Indiana and is worth $1 million, according to a California Lottery official.

More than 3 million tickets were sold in California alone, setting a national lotto record.

The next drawing will be Saturday with an estimated $70 million up for grabs.
