There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Monday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to grow to $35 million.

One ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in New Mexico and is worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The numbers drawn Monday were 15, 16, 24, 31, 56 and the Powerball number was 4. The jackpot was $26 million.

The drawing was the second 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, which conducts the game. 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.
