The Powerball jackpot stood at around $747 million by Monday after no ticket matched all six numbers after Saturday night's drawing.

Powerball said the jackpot had grown to its fifth-largest in thegame'shistory.

If a player wins the grand prize, it would have a cash value estimated at around $403.1 million, making it the ninth-largest lottery jackpot in the United States, according to Powerball.

Players did win some money on Saturday though. Four tickets sold in New Jersey, Oregon, Florida and Pennsylvania matched five of the balls, earning those players $1 million, Powerball said.

The last time a player hit the jackpot was on Nov. 19, 2022, when a player in Kansas hit the grand prize at around $92.9 million.

Powerball drawings are held three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m.
