The five white balls drawn were 19, 25, 48, 55, 60 and the red Powerball was 18, lottery officials said in a news release.
With no matching ticket to all of the numbers in more than 11 weeks, the promotion has now gone 34 consecutive draws without a winner.

Monday’s top prize will be the eighth largest in the promotion’s history. Should someone win, they can take an annuity option paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $292.6 million.
Saturday night’s Powerball prize had been estimated at $580 million, with a cash value of $278.2 million.
More than 1.4 million tickets won cash prizes totaling $12.9 million in Saturday’s drawing, according to lottery officials. Three tickets matched all five balls and were worth $1 million. Those tickets were bought in New York, South Carolina and Texas.
The Powerball jackpot was last won on Aug. 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot. Since then, the game has had 34 drawings in a row without a grand prize winner. Monday’s drawing will be the 35th draw in the jackpot run.
In addition to the Aug. 3 jackpot, there have been four other Powerball jackpots won in 2022, including a $632.6 million jackpot hit on Jan. 5 and split by winners in California and Wisconsin; a $185.3 million jackpot won on Feb. 14 in Connecticut; a $473.1 million jackpot won on April 27 in Arizona; and a $366.7 million jackpot won on June 29 in Vermont.
Powerball tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. ET.
The overall odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
