FILE - A clerk hands over a Powerball ticket for cash at Tower City Lottery Stop in Cleveland, Jan. 13, 2016. One ticket matched Saturday's winning numbers for a nearly $430 million jackpot.

A sole Powerball ticket, sold in New Jersey, matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing, which was worth $429.6 million.

Saturday's jackpot was the largest prize since last January, when it reached $1.6 billion -- the largest in Powerball history.

The winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday were 5-25-26-44-66 and the Powerball number of 9.

The winner was not identified.

Powerball is played in 44 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah are the only states that don't participate.
