The Powerball drawing for Monday, April 1 has 5 million

(CNN) — No one won the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, so Monday's jackpot drawing was close to $1 billion, according to the lottery.

The numbers that came out on Saturday were 33, 13, 50, 12, 52 and 23 from Powerball.

The Powerball jackpot went from $935 million to $975 million on Saturday, with no ticket matching six numbers for the next drawing on Monday.

The winner of Monday's drawing jackpot can choose to receive the money in annual payments, if there is one, or an estimated lump sum of $471.7 million.

Although no one won the jackpot in the last drawing, three tickets won $1 million each by matching the first five numbers. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Texas. According to the Powerball website.

The Powerball jackpot was last won in January, when a Michigan ticket won an $842.4 million jackpot. Since then, there have been 37 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner, according to Powerball.

According to the lottery, the largest Powerball jackpot ever won for a ticket purchased in California in November 2022 — and the largest U.S. lottery prize — is $2.04 billion.

Saturday's estimated $935 million jackpot would rank fifth on Powerball's all-time prize list. US$ 1,765 million for second through fourth place (one ticket in California; 2023); US$ 1,586 million (three tickets, 2016); and US$ 1,080 million (one ticket in California, 2023).

Winning the Powerball jackpot means a ticket matches five white balls and a red Powerball. According to the lottery, the odds of winning any prize in the Powerball drawing are 1 in 24.9, and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
