The Multistate Powerball jackpot has grown to the second largest in Powerball history, estimated at $1 billion.
The winning numbers will be announced Monday night, and Californians can purchase $2 worth of tickets until 7 p.m. to play, according to the California Lottery.
While there were no jackpot winners in Saturday’s drawing, Powerball players won lower prizes, including six tickets that matched all five white balls but missed the Powerball — two of which were sold at California retailers, according to Powerball officials. The tickets, worth more than $550,000, were sold at Ramirez Liquor in Pico Rivera and Cafe Mad Dog in Alpine County, east of Sacramento, according to the California Lottery.
If someone wins Monday’s jackpot, it will be the fifth largest grand prize in US lottery history, according to Powerball officials. The current record was set in 2016 with $1.586 billion shared between Powerball winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
Monday’s Powerball drawing will be announced at the Florida Lottery Drawing Studio in Tallahassee at 7:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
According to official Powerball figures, there have been 37 Powerball draws since August without a grand prize winner. The last jackpot was hit in Pennsylvania on August 3rd.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, according to Powerball officials.
