The Powerball jackpot has risen to the tenth-largest prize in the lottery game after no numbers matched the six numbers drawn on Monday night.

The winning numbers were white balls 2, 21, 26, 40, 42, and red Powerball 9 with a Power Play multiplier of three.

Monday’s drawing produced more than 905,000 winning tickets across the country, including a ticket in Massachusetts that matched all five white balls to win a $1 million prize.

Other big wins from the drawing include 17 tickets that won $50,000 prizes and three tickets that won $150,000 prizes.

Now, the current grand prize is ranked as the third-largest jackpot this year at $672 million with an estimated cash value of $320.5 million.

The last record-breaking Powerball jackpot was won in California on July 19, with the overall prize totaling $1.08 billion — the game’s third jackpot to ever reach the billion-dollar mark. A few months prior, a $754.6 million jackpot was won in Washington on February 6.

The upcoming drawing on Wednesday night will be the 27th in the current jackpot run following the last hit in July.

If a player wins the jackpot on Wednesday night, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $672 million or a lump sum payment estimated at $320.5 million.

At this time, the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.

Lottery officials are also reminding Mississippi residents to check their tickets as one player has yet to claim a $10,000 Mega Millions ticket from the March 28 drawing.

The ticket, which was purchased from Main Street Junction on West Beacon Street in Philadelphia, has until Friday, September 22 to be redeemed.
