A lottery ticket sold in Tennessee had the winning numbers for a $421 million Powerball jackpot, one of the biggest on record, officials said after Saturday’s draw.
The winning numbers selected were 17, 19, 21, 37, 44, with the Powerball 16. No one as yet had stepped forward to claim the prize, which grew in size since Sept. 17, the last time anyone matched all six numbers.
The jackpot soared from $403 million to a reported $420.9 million on Saturday due to a spate of late ticket-buying.
The prize is paid out over 30 years, with the option of a lump sum payment, which officials said would add up to about $254.7 million.
