With no direct winners reported in Thursday’s draw, Saturday’s Powerball jackpot grew to approximately $825 million, the second largest ever.

It wasn’t immediately clear on Saturday night whether anyone matched the five winning numbers 19-31-40-46-57 and the Powerball, 23.

If a winner of Saturday night’s drawing emerges, they could take more than $410 million in cash and claim the fifth largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history, Powerball officials said in a statement.

If there is no winner, the jackpot that has been rolling since early August will be extended again to Monday night’s draw, when it will reach an estimated $1 billion, officials said. It would be the 37th time that a Powerball draw has not resulted in a jackpot winner.

Organizers said the growing jackpot has resulted in more purchases of $2 tickets for the game. “A Powerball jackpot of this magnitude has a lot of people dreaming big,” Powerball group product president Drew Svitko said in the statement Saturday.

The estimated $825 jackpot was the biggest Powerball prize of 2022 so far, organizers said. And it was the second largest in total, next to the nearly 1.6 billion jackpot shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee after a draw on January 13, 2016.

On August 3, a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to pay the last Powerball jackpot. The ticket was worth $206.9 million.
