The new jackpot is the second largest in Powerball's 30-year history, the lottery reported, just behind the record of $1.586 billion in 2016.
On Oct. 31, 10 tickets matched all five numbers except the Powerball number, resulting in a $1 million win for each, but so far no one has walked away with the jackpot.
Three pairs of the tickets that matched were from California, Ohio and Texas. While Florida, Indiana, Michigan and New York had one winning ticket each.
In addition to those 10 winners, three tickets won a $2 million prize using the lottery's Power Play feature, Powerball reported to the Austin American-Statesman.
So far, Powerball has had 38 straight drawings without a jackpot winner. The last big prize was awarded to a ticket in Pennsylvania on Aug. 3 for a total of $206.9 million.
"The Powerball jackpot was last hit on Aug. 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot," Powerball said in a statement shared by CNN. "Since then, there have been 37 straight drawings without a grand prize winner. Monday night's drawing will be the 38th drawing in the jackpot race."
Powerball is playable in 45 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The cutoff time to purchase a Powerball ticket varies by jurisdiction.
