There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery, pushing the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing to $100 million.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Florida, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game. It is worth $2 million because the player utilized the Power Play option, where for an additional $1 per play, a ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, is worth $2 million.

The numbers drawn Monday were 18, 21, 25, 46, 64 and the Powerball number was 21. The estimated jackpot was $87 million.

The drawing was the fifth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in 292.2 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.9.

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