The happy Powerball saga continues.
With no jackpot winner, Saturday’s record $1.6 billion pot is now at an estimated $1.9 billion for Monday’s drawing.
The cash value of the $1.9 billion prize is a lump sum payment of $921.1 million. The full amount can be taken as an annuity over 30 years.
This is the largest amount ever for a national lottery. Powerball is played in 45 states.
The previous record was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot in 2016, shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
Monday marks the 41st consecutive drawing without a grand prize winner, topping the prior record of 40.
