One player won the $842.2 million Powerball drawing Monday (January 1) night, CBS News reports.

A ticket purchased in Grand Blanc, Michigan matched all five white numbers and the red Powerball, resetting the next drawing to $20 million ($10.2 million cash value) for Wednesday (January 3).

Results from Monday's Powerball game are listed below:

NUMBERS: 12-21-42-44-49

POWERBALL: 1

POWER PLAY: 3x

The Powerball jackpot previously reset after one player in Frazier Park, California, won the $1.73 billion Powerball drawing on October 11. The drawing was the second-largest in the game's history and the second-largest in U.S. lottery history.

One player in California had previously matched all six numbers to win the $2.04 billion ($997.6 million) jackpot on November 7, the largest jackpot offered in U.S. lottery history, according to the official Powerball website. Powerball has had jackpots exceeding $1 billion four times.

The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million regardless of the size of the drawing. Mega Millions games have also exceeded $1 billion five times, which includes its largest offering, a $1.603 billion jackpot that was one by a player in Florida on August 8.

Both jackpots increase during each following game until there's a jackpot winning ticket matching all six numbers drawn, which includes the additional Mega Millions Gold Ball or Powerball in each respective game.
