The draw for Saturday's $421 million Powerball jackpot has a winner, and their ticket was bought in Tennessee, 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 released early Sunday morning.

A ticket worth $1 million was sold in Pennsylvania. Another was sold in Minnesota.

The winning numbers drawn were 17, 19, 21, 37, 44, and the Powerball was 16. The jackpot was initially $403 million, but increased due to late ticket-buying.

The holder of the winning ticket has not publicly come forward yet.

According to the statement, the ticket is the 200th sold by the Tennessee Lottery worth $1 million or more.

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

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million.
