Powerball winner - New Jersey

The winning ticket in the $429.6 million Powerball lottery on Saturday night was picked up at a 7-Eleven in New Jersey.

The winning numbers selected just before 11 p.m. EDT were 25 66 44 5 26 with the Powerball 9.

The winner has not been identified at this time. Some winners wait months to come forward after winning large sums of money during Powerball drawings.

This was the largest jackpot for any US lottery since January, when three Powerball tickets split a record $1.6 billion.

Winning the Powerball is no simple feat, the chances of winning are 1 in 292 million.

The winner in Saturday nights drawing was chosen after 17 consecutive draws without a winner.

Last minute tickets were purchased just before Saturday night’s drawing which helped add about $15 million to the jackpot.

Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
