“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 Saturday morning.

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.
