There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Monday’s drawing is expected to grow to $480 million.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Ohio and Texas, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. They are each worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 32, 37, 40, 58, 62 and the Powerball number was 15. The jackpot was $454 million.

The drawing was the 31st since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
