TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Powerball lottery jackpot is now worth over a half a billion dollars.

After no one matched all six numbers in Wednesday's $562.1 million drawing, the jackpot is growing to an estimated $625 million for Saturday's drawing. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $380.6 million.

It is the fourth largest Powerball jackpot since the game began in 1992 and the largest jackpot since tickets in Iowa and New York split a $687.8 jackpot just before Halloween.

There have been 23 consecutive drawings without a winner since a ticket sold in New York matched all six numbers in the $294 million Powerball jackpot drawing on December 26.

Wednesday's winning numbers are 10, 14, 50, 53, 63 with 21 as the Powerball. The Power Play multiplier was two.

The deadline to buy tickets for Saturday night's drawing is 10:00 p.m. EST. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
