A real Fun time for someone who just won a fortune as big as USD $429.6 last saturday night.

Someone is holding onto the sole winning Powerball ticket that was sold in New Jersey and is worth $429.6 million, lottery officials announced early Sunday.

Only one ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing, said Powerball spokeswoman Kelly Cripe. The winning Powerball numbers were 5-25-26-44-66 and the Powerball number was 9.

Kripe said the exact location of where the winning ticket was sold was not immediately known and likely would be disclosed later Sunday by New Jersey Lottery officials.
The jackpot Saturday had climbed to nearly $430 million, making the prize the largest since a record $1.6 billion payout in January that prompted some to wait in hours-long lines outside lottery retailers. But unlike Saturday night’s drawing, that jackpot was shared by three winning tickets.

Only one winning ticket will claim Saturday night’s prize, though it was not immediately known if that ticket was held by one or more people. Kripe said a winner, or co-winners, electing a one-time cash payout will receive $284.1 million.

This isn’t the first time Powerball luck has struck in New Jersey. In 2013, a sole ticket claimed a $383 million Powerball jackpot.

Seven tickets from Saturday night’s drawing matched five numbers and claimed $1 million, including three in New York, two in Illinois and one apiece in California and Virginia.

Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning are one in 292.2 Million.
