(CNN) — Someone in New Jersey just got really, really rich.
A winning ticket for Saturday night’s $338 million Powerball jackpot was sold in the state, lottery officials said early Sunday.
The ticket matched all six numbers drawn: 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and 31. The lottery is held in 42 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.
The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $587.5 million. A ticket purchased in Arizona and another in Missouri shared the prize in November.
