PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Powerball jackpot just keeps growing.

There was no big winner in Monday night's drawing.

That means Wednesday's prize is now worth $441-million.

But don't throw away Monday night's tickets just yet!

There was a $2-million winner in New Jersey, with the Match 5 + Power Play, meaning the ticket holder correctly picked the five white balls. It is not yet known where in New Jersey the ticket was sold.

Monday's winning numbers were 36 - 38 - 45 - 62 - 64 and the Powerball was 19. The Power Play multiplier was 2x.

The last winning jackpot came back on October 4 with a prize of nearly $700-million.

A single ticket sold in California matched all six numbers. The jackpot at the time rose to $699.8 million, making it the seventh-largest in U.S. lottery history.

Powerball is played in 45 states plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
