No one reportedly won Monday's jackpot prize of an estimated $113 million with a cash value of $77.8 million. However, one lucky player won the second prize by matching five white balls number. The ticket was sold in California at the Vons market at 665 Saturn Boulevard. The ticket is worth $489,235, as California lottery prizes vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners.

Meanwhile, no one won more than $300 with a single ticket in New Jersey, lottery officials said. Monday’s winning numbers were 10, 15, 51, 61, and 69. The Powerball drawn was 14 with a Power Play of 3X. The next Powerball draw will be on Feb. 5, Saturday.

To get a chance to win the grand prize, a player must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. The five numbers need to be selected from 1 to 69 for the white balls, while the remaining number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

To claim jackpot prizes, the winners will have options; they can either select their prize as an annuity or a lump-sum payment. The annuity guarantees the winner to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years. The annual payments increase by 5% until the 30th and final payment. The 30 payments added up equal the value of the annuity.

The Powerball costs $2 per play. Powerball is available in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 pm ET. Meanwhile, the sales cut-off times vary depending on the selling jurisdiction, mostly by one to two hours before the drawing schedule.

The Powerball drawing is aired live on TV stations throughout the state; WBKB-TV 11 (CBS), WDIV-TV 4 (NBC), WNEM-TV 5 (CBS), WXSP-TV (MyNetwork TV), WLAJ-TV 53 (ABC), WMKG-TV 38 (IND), WLUC-TV 6 (NBC/FOX) and WGTU-TV 29/WGTQ-TV 8 (ABC).
