The record-breaking $1.55 billion Powerball jackpot is still waiting to be hit after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn on Saturday night.

The winning numbers were white balls 47, 54, 57, 60, 65, and red Powerball 19 with a PowerPlay multiplier of three.

Saturday’s drawing night produced more than 4.5 million winning tickets across the country, including ten tickets in CA, KS, LA, MA, MI, OH, TX, and WI that matched all five white balls to win $1 million prizes.

Two tickets, sold in Iowa and Maine, matched all five white balls and increased the $1 million prize to $2 million by including the Power Play feature. Other big wins include 85 tickets that won $50,000 prizes and 27 tickets that won $150,000 prizes.

The upcoming drawing on Monday will be the 35th drawing in the jackpot run, and the first time in Powerball history that back-to-back jackpot cycles have generated billion-dollar grand prizes.

The Powerball jackpot was previously won on July 19, when a ticket in California won a jackpot worth $1.08 billion.

Monday’s estimated jackpot ranks as the third largest in the Powerball game and fourth-largest among U.S. lottery jackpots.

If a player wins the jackpot on Monday night, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $1.55 billion or a lump sum payment estimated at $679.8 million.

The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
