The winning numbers in the Powerball lottery drawing Saturday night were 21-24-36-42-45 with Powerball 15, however there were no winners.

The jackpot for the next drawing is now estimated at $400 million, according to Powerball officials. That would be worth more than $230 million before taxes if taken as a lump sum, according to NBC News.

In San Diego, locals were buying their last-minute Powerball tickets all day, hoping to somehow pick the lucky number combination that would lead to the coveted $300 million prize.

“We’ve got the winning ticket, right here,” said one man buying a Powerball ticket at a local store. “It’s going to help a lot of people.”

Lotto officials say the largest Lottery jackpot ever won was the $656 million Mega Millions prize won on March, 30, 2012. The cash option on that jackpot was $474 million.

In terms of the Powerball jackpot, a ticket worth $590.5 million was recently sold in Florida, the state with the most Powerball winners to date.

Powerball is played in 42 states – including California – plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
