The U.S. Powerball numbers announced Saturday night, 22-32-37-44-50, had no matching entries, so the jackpot has soared to a record $425 million for the next drawing, NBC News reported.

There were 10 winners of $1 million and one winner of $2 million, however, according to the Powerball lottery website.

The prize for Saturday's Powerball was $325 million, which was already the fourth largest in the game's history, and the 15th consecutive time that there was no winner.

The current jackpot estimate of $425 million is the biggest so far in the history of the multistate lottery game held in 42 states, Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia, CNN reported.

The next draw is scheduled to take place Wednesday.

Recent Powerball winners include an Iowa couple who won $202 million Sept. 26. A week later, a Delaware resident picked all six numbers for a $50 million payday, NBC News has stated.

With Powerball tickets doubling in price to $2 since January, the tickets sold have decreased but sales revenue has increased by about 35 percent, Norm Lingle, chairman of the Powerball board of directors, told NBC News. The increase in ticket price resulted in a bigger jackpot.
