LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. (AP) - The sole winning ticket sold for Saturday's $338.3 million Powerball drawing was purchased at a liquor store in northern New Jersey.

State lottery officials announced the ticket was bought at Eagle Liquor in Passaic.

However, the winner has not yet come forward to claim the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history.

The numbers drawn were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million.

Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is about 1 in 175 million.
