    A winning Powerball ticket was sold in Tennessee, netting an unknown victor the entire $420.9 million jackpot. 

    No winner had come forward to claim it as of Sunday morning, though the Tennessee Lottery did tweet that the winning ticket was sold in Lafayette.

    The prize is the second largest overall jackpot for the Tennessee Lottery. The first was a $528.8 million Powerball prize won by a family in January 2016, who split the $1.58 billion record pot with winners in two other states.

    The latest jackpot surged over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend after no winning numbers were selected in a Wednesday night drawing.

    The latest winning numbers called Saturday night were: 17-19-21-37-44, Powerball: 16, Power Play: 2 

    The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million. The popular game is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
