Sept. 30 (UPI) -- The Powerball jackpot has risen to an estimated $620 million, the 10th largest in U.S. lottery history, ahead of Saturday night's drawing.

No one matched all six numbers Wednesday night, allowing the jackpot to increase.

If someone matches all the numbers on Saturday, the winner would take home the 10th largest prize ever, CNBC reported. But the jackpot is still $980 million behind the largest prize ever of $1.6 billion in January 2016.

The cash value of Saturday night's estimated jackpot, which CNBC noted most winners choose over an annuity spread over 30 years, is $446 million, the Powerball website shows.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit on June 5 in Florida with a single winning ticket worth nearly $286 million. Since then, there have been 38 drawings without a grand prize winner.
