A jackpot-winning Powerball ticket was sold in California for the record $2.04 billion grand prize, according to lottery officials.

Only one ticket matched all six numbers to claim the top prize. The winning numbers for Monday’s drawing are: 10, 33, 41, 47 and 56, with the Powerball of 10.

The grand prize has an estimated cash value of $997.6 million.

One ticket sold in Florida won the Power Play Match for a cash value of $2 million. Twenty-two other tickets sold across the country won the Powerball Match for $1 million prizes.

Monday evening's Powerball drawing was delayed for nearly 10 hours until Tuesday morning because a participating lottery had issues processing sales. 

The association said it was against its policy to say which lottery had the delay.
