(Newser) – Someone is holding onto the sole winning Powerball ticket that was sold in New Jersey and is worth $429.6 million, reports AP. 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. (Read more Powerball stories.)
