No one matched the five numbers and Powerball on Monday night, meaning that Wednesday’s jackpot will be worth $441 million, lottery officials said.

The numbers drawn were 2-6-9-33-39 and the Powerball number was 11, according to the Powerball website.

According to Powerball officials, jackpot-winning numbers have not been selected in the past 37 drawings.

No one has won a Powerball jackpot since Oct. 4, when one player won $699.8 million. That was Powerball’s fifth-largest and the seventh-largest for any lottery in the United States.

Meanwhile, the largest Powerball jackpot to date was the $1.586 billion payout split by three winners in 2016, CNN reported.
