MADISON, Wisconsin — Wisconsin may not have landed the big jackpot in the unprecedented $1.6 billion Powerball drawing, but 13 players in the Badger State will each pocket $50,000.

The Wisconsin Lottery says 13 tickets matched four of five winning numbers and the Powerball. Those tickets were sold in Green Bay, Oregon, Cottage Grove, Madison (2), Sturgeon Bay, Portage, Burlington, Racine, Beloit, Glenbeulah, Sheboygan and Germantown.

The $1.6 billion jackpot will be split three ways with the winning tickets sold in California, Florida and Tennessee.

The Powerball jackpot for Saturday night's drawing is $40 million.
