In another universe, you might have played the Powerball Saturday and picked the numbers 28, 45, 53, 56, 69 with a Powerball of 20. However, that bit of luck did not happen for you or anyone else who played the record $1.6 billion lottery, reports Fox Business. For the 40th consecutive drawing, no winning tickets matched all six numbers, per CNN, meaning the jackpot for Monday's drawing is expected to grow to $1.9 billion. The cash payout would be $929 million, but that could rise as FOMO causes a surge in ticket-buying before the draw. (Read about one highly unusual lottery outcome, this one in the Philippines.)
