The sole winning ticket sold for Saturday's $338.3 million Powerball drawing was purchased at a liquor store in northern New Jersey.

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

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

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.

The Powerball jackpot was last won in early February.
