This marks the second-largest prize in the history of the Powerball lottery. It's also the first time in Powerball's history that consecutive jackpot cycles have reached billion-dollar prizes, according to Powerball.



If a lucky ticket holder wins the jackpot, they will have the option to choose between an annuitized prize estimated at $1.73 billion or a lump-sum payment estimated at $756.6 million, both before taxes.


Monday's winning numbers were 16, 34, 46, 55, 67, and Powerball 14.

The drawing resulted in more than 3.7 million winning tickets at lower prize levels, including a $2 million prize in Florida and four $1 million prizes in California, Indiana, Oregon, and Virginia, as per Powerball.


The jackpot has gone unclaimed for months, with the last win occurring on July 19 when a single ticket in California secured a $1.08 billion jackpot. The $1.73 billion prize is second in size only to a $2.04 billion prize won in California last November.
