Powerball winner yet to come forward to claim prize

A lottery player fills out numbers on a Powerball form on Jan. 12 in Oakland, Calif. The Powerball jackpot has grown to over $1.5 billion. Only one ticket matched all six numbers in the drawing Saturday for a $429.6 million jackpot, said Powerball spokeswoman Kelly Cripe, and New Jersey lottery officials said Sunday it was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Trenton, New Jersey.

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Powerball jackpot has climbed above $400 million for the first time in nearly three months.

The top prize for Wednesday night's drawing will be an estimated $403 million if paid over 29 years or $244 million in cash. Winners then would have to pay taxes on their winnings.

The game's six numbers will be drawn at 10:59 p.m. eastern time. Five white balls are drawn from a drum with 69 balls and a red ball is drawn from a drum with 26 balls.
