Powerball jackpot climbs $835 million

As a result of no winner, the Powerball jackpot has climbed to $835 million

After no one beat the odds and won the top prize on Monday night, 

the Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $835 million.

10, 12, 22, 36, 50, and 4 were the winning numbers.

Since July 19, when a California player won $1.08 billion in the lottery,

29 consecutive drawings have gone without a jackpot winner.

A Powerball jackpot win is extremely unlikely at 1 in 292.2 million, 

Which explains the winless streak. Those long, 

long odds are what cause the jackpot to roll over week after week, resulting in such large top prizes.
