The current Powerball jackpot has increased once again, rising to take the new record of the fourth-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.
Now, the jackpot has climbed to an estimated $1.2 billion – or $596.7 million cash – after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn on Monday night. The winning numbers were white balls 13, 19, 36, 39, 59, and red Powerball 13.
Players are still being asked to check their tickets, however, as there were 134 tickets nationwide that won a $50,000 prize and 23 that won a $150,000 prize.
The next drawing for the $1.2 billion jackpot will be on Wednesday, November 2. As of now, the current jackpot has grown to be Powerball’s largest prize in more than six years.
If a player wins Wednesday’s jackpot, it will be the second-largest jackpot win in Powerball history, only behind the world record $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot. The last hit was on August 3 in Pennsylvania, making the last drawing the 38th in a row that did not have a grand prize winner.
