These Powerball jackpot numbers could win you a frightening amount of dough.

The winning numbers drawn for the grand prize of $1 billion on Halloween night were: 13, 19, 36, 39, 59. The Powerball was 13.

Going into Monday night’s drawing, there have been 37 consecutive Powerball drawings without a winner.

By early Tuesday morning, it was unclear if anyone hit the massive jackpot.

The cash value, if taken in a lump sum, would be $497.3 million. Winners can also choose to have the money paid out as an annuity over 29 years.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

As the prize has shot up, interest in the lottery has spiked with more tickets for the game being purchased online with the app Jackpocket, responsible for about 15% of ticket sales in New York since the current prize run began in August.

If a lucky winner clinched the scary sum of money Monday, it would be the second highest after a $1.586 billion drawing in 2016. 

The last grand prize winner struck gold on Aug. 3 when a Pennsylvania ticket won the $206.9 million prize.

Even if the grand prize isn’t clinched Monday, lottery players can still win $1 million if their first five numbers match.
