A lottery ticket sold in Tennessee matched the winning numbers drawn Saturday for a $420.9 million Powerball jackpot, according to lottery officials.

“And it’s Tennessee again! For the sixth time, a Tennessee Lottery player has won a Powerball jackpot—this time it’s a $420.9 million grand prize for a very lucky person who purchased a ticket in Lafayette (Macon County),” the Tennessee Lottery said in a statement posted online.

The winning numbers were 17, 19, 21, 37, 44, with a Powerball of 16.

The jackpot grew to an estimated $420.9 million Saturday due to a surge of ticket-buying.

So far, no one has stepped forward to claim the prize.

The largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history was a $1.6 billion prize split among three winning tickets earlier this year.  The winning tickets were sold in Florida, Tennessee and California.
