SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

UPDATE -- Powerball winning numbers: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and Power number is 11.

The Powerball Jackpot is estimated at $600 million dollars. At $2 dollars per play experts say most of the winning combinations are in play which makes it very likely for a winner to be named Saturday night.  

In the event no winner is named the jackpot rolls over to just under $1 billion.

This jackpot attracts all kinds of Powerball players-- first-timers, seasoned pros, lucky number believers and those who never fell for the hype.

Some players come with their numbers, one player had them tattooed on her ribcage close to her heart while others relied on the computer generated quick pick numbers to play.

Some said they would buy an island resort in Fiji if they won, or pay off student loan debt or family debts.

California Lottery officials say last year public schools in Santa Barbara County received more than 12-million dollars from the California Lottery and now with Powerball still new to California  that amount could grow.
