Powerball winner yet to come forward to claim prize

Posted:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- The sole winner of the $429.6 million Powerball jackpot has yet to come forward to claim the prize.

Only one ticket matched all six Powerball numbers in Saturday night's drawing. The winning numbers were 5-25-26-44-66 and the Powerball number was 9.

Lottery officials in New Jersey say the winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Trenton. It was purchased as a cash ticket and is valued at $284 million.

The jackpot is the sixth-largest in Powerball jackpot history.

Luis Sandoval sold the winning ticket. He tells NJ.com that when his co-workers told him the news he was "blown away."

Lottery officials plan to hold a press conference at the 7-Eleven on Monday morning to discuss the details of the winning ticket.
