NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Powerball jackpot has topped a half-billion dollars for Wednesday's drawing.

The current prize of $508 million is just shy of a top 10 Powerball jackpot.

No one hit the jackpot on Monday. Those winning numbers were 19, 30, 36, 46 and 60, and the Powerball was 25.

One ticket purchased in Kentucky had all 5 numbers but not the Powerball, and included the Power Play, making that ticket worth $2 million.

Powerball tickets cost $2 and another $1 for Power Play, which could multiply winnings up to 5 times. Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Players must match all five numbers and the Powerball to win the grand prize.

Odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is 1 in 292 million.
