Powerball's latest drawing produced a $1 million winner in Philadelphia.

Wednesday's annuity jackpot will be worth $50 million because no one matched all the numbers drawn Saturday night: 2, 3, 7, 23 and 51, with a Powerball of 26.

Five tickets just missed, matching the first five numbers but not the Powerball. An Oklahoma ticket won $2 million because its buyer also purchased the Power Play prize multiplier option. The four others -- sold in Philadelphia, New York, Maryland and South Carolina -- won $1 million each.

The local ticket was bought at Xpress Food Mart, 1642 South St.

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot will be worth $41 million for the annuity, because no one matched all the numbers drawn Friday night. They were 9, 13, 30, 35 and 69, with a Mega Ball of 10.

No one won the $5 million or $1 million secondary prizes.
