NASHVILLE, Tennessee –One lucky person in Tennessee is about to be $420.9 million richer.

The winning ticket for Saturday’s Powerball jackpot draw was sold in Lafayette, Tennessee, according to officials. There were also three Match Five winners from Minnesota and Pennsylvania.

The ticket, which matched all six Powerball numbers is also the 200th winning ticket sold by the Tennessee Lottery, CBS Chattanooga affiliate WDEF-TV reports.

The winning numbers: 17-19-21-37-44, Powerball: 16, Power Play: 2.

The prize was on the brink of becoming one of the largest jackpots in U.S. history if it kept rolling with no lucky winners. A record-setting $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot was reached in January.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
