The top prize was not taken over the weekend, so the stakes increased from $1.6 billion to $1.9 billion. The draw will be held again on Monday.

The biggest ever lottery win is waiting to be won in the United States after the Powerball jackpot failed to find a winner in Saturday night’s draw.

According to the California Gaming Association, the next draw on Monday night will be worth around $1.9 billion ($830 billion). Even before Saturday’s draw, the top prize was already a record $1.6 billion, and it will continue to grow.

According to a statement released by the Gaming Association on social media, Saturday’s draw also broke the record for the number of draws without a jackpot, after 40 draws without a Powerball lottery jackpot. The last winning ticket in the game was in early August.

According to the calculations published on the record win, the mathematical probability of a hit in the next draw is 1 in 292.2 million.

Powerball tickets are available for purchase in 45 states in the United States, as well as in the capital Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands for $2 each.

According to the Guinness World Records, the largest prize ever won in a national lottery was $1.586 billion, which was also won in the US Powerball back in 2016.
