(Before It's News)

No one won the Powerball jackpot on Saturday night, but one ticket sold in New Jersey is worth $1 million.

The $1 million ticket matched five numbers but not the Powerball, according to Powerball officials. The location of the sale in New Jersey was not made public Sunday morning.

With no big winner, the jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will be worth at least $403 million with a cash option of $243.9 million. The overall projection would make it among the top 10 largest jackpots in U.S. lottery history.

The lucky New Jersey ticket was one of six second-prize tickets sold across the country for the $349 million drawing. The others were bought in Louisiana, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Saturdays’ winning numbers were 37931 and 33. The Powerball was 20

The odds of a $2 ticket matching five numbers are about 11,688,053 to 1.

No one has hit the jackpot since Dec. 17 when a Delaware couple who bought a ticket in Pennsylvania won the $121.6 million prize.
