(KMOV.com) - Powerball mania hit the St. Louis region on Wednesday.

“It’s a number nobody thinks they’re ever going to achieve, that’s a generation's worth of wealth I think it gets everybody excited,” said Dave Birkenmeier.

The jackpot was $700 million for the mid-week drawing.

The winning numbers are:

7, 26, 16, 23, 6, Powerball is 4

People flocked to area gas stations for the chance at the $444.3 million cash payout.

If no one matches Wednesday night's numbers lottery officials estimate the pot will climb to a $1 billion.
