If you bought a Powerball ticket in Pennsylvania for Saturday's drawing, you may be holding a piece of paper worth $457 million.

The winning ticket matched all five numbers and the Powerball number to win the jackpot.

The odds of winning Saturday's drawing, held at 10:59 pm ET (0259 GMT), were 1 in 292 million.

Nineteen drawings have been held without a top prize victor since a New Hampshire woman captured a $559.7 million jackpot for the Jan, 6 drawing.

The winning Powerball ticket was sold right here in Pennsylvania.

If the victor decides to take the cash lump sum option, they will receive about $273.9 million, Powerball officials said. The largest jackpot in Powerball history was $1.6 billion. They were sold in California, Missouri, and Texas.
