One winning ticket matched the numbers drawn on Saturday night for the multi-state Powerball jackpot for a payout estimated at $429.6 million, the ninth-highest U.S. lottery prize in history, officials said.
The winning numbers selected just before 11 p.m. EDT were 25 66 44 5 26 with the Powerball 9. Lottery officials said one ticket, purchased in New Jersey, had the winning combination, according to media reports.
The winner was not identified. Winners of huge lottery payouts sometimes do not come forward publicly for months.
It was the largest jackpot for any U.S. lottery since January, when three Powerball tickets split a record $1.6 billion.
