Nobody matched all the numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing.

That means Monday's jackpot will be for $1 billion, according to Powerball.com.

The jackpot for a potential winner who takes the cash option, would be worth approximately $497.3 million.

Saturday's jackpot had a grand prize of $825 million.

The numbers drawn were:  19, 31, 40, 46, 57 with a Powerball number of 23 and the Powerplay multiplier of 3x.

There was one winner who matched five numbers and the Powerplay for a $2 million prize.

There were winners who matched five numbers worth $1 million in California, Maryland, Michigan and Texas.
