SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing caused a buying frenzy across the Bay Area as players sought to strike on an estimated jackpot of $550 million.

The winning numbers were drawn at 8 p.m.: 10-14-50-53-63-Power-21.

According to CBS News, no winning tickets bought on Wednesday matched all six winning numbers, so the jackpot for Saturday night’s Powerball drawing will be at least $625 million. This marks the fourth time the jackpot has been over $600 million.

The cash payout option will be at least an estimated $380.6 million.

The pot has been building since the end of December, when the Powerball jackpot was last awarded to a winner. There have been over 20 drawings with no one selecting the six lucky numbers.

The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
