NEW YORK (WABC) -- There is one big winner after Saturday night's Powerball drawing.

Someone in Tennessee matched every number for the $420.9 million jackpot.

The lump sum payment would add up to about $254.7 million.

No one has stepped forward yet to claim the prize.

The winning numbers in the drawing for Saturday are 17-19-21-37-44, Powerball: 16, Power Play: 2

The prize was on the brink of becoming one of the largest jackpots in U.S. history if it kept rolling with no lucky winners.

A record-setting $1.6 billion jackpot was reached in January.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The odds of a $2 ticket hitting the jackpot are more than 292 million to 1.
