Powerball jackpot grows again: $685 million for tonight
The biggest lottery prize in months just got even bigger. The Powerball jackpot is now at $685 million for tonight's drawing.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The numbers have been drawn for Monday night's Powerball jackpot worth an estimated $685 million.

The numbers are: 66, 12, 22, 54, 69 and the Powerball is 15.

The estimated jackpot amount refers to winners who opt to be paid through an annuity over 29 years. Most winners prefer the cash option, which for Monday's drawing would be an estimated $485.5 million before taxes.

The Powerball jackpot has slowly climbed thanks to 40 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner, a record streak for the game dating back to June 5. There hasn't been a bigger Powerball jackpot since a $731.1 million prize was won on Jan. 20. Saturday's grand prize of $635 million would have been the 10th largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever won.

You can see the Powerball drawings at on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m.

Mega Millions is also streamed at on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m.

While there was no top winner in last Wednesday's Powerball drawing, the New York Lottery announced Thursday that one second-prize ticket worth $1 million was sold in Brooklyn. The ticket was purchased at Foster Island Corporation at 9702 Foster Avenue.

And the New Jersey State Lottery announced three $50,000 winners in the Garden State, one each in Woodbridge, Clifton and Elizabeth.
