Will a Powerball player become a billionaire Monday or will the jackpot continue to grow?
No one matched all six winning numbers in the Saturday, Nov. 5, drawing. They were: white balls 28, 45, 53 and 69 and red Powerball 20.
The next drawing is Monday and the estimated jackpot is now a record setting $1.9 billion, or a lump sum cash value of $929 million. If there is more than one winning ticket sold, the jackpot is shared equally.
At $1.65 billion, Saturday’s jackpot was the largest in Powerball history. A late surge in ticket sales bumped it higher than the $1.58 billion drawing from January 2016.
Monday’s jackpot has been growing since Aug. 3 when a ticket sold in Pennsylvania won $206 million.
The drawing for Monday’s Powerball jackpot will be live streamed at Powerball.com at 10:59 p.m. ET.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
