A person who has yet to be identified will likely be pocketing the tenth-largest lottery prize in USA history, after lottery officials confirmed a winning Powerball ticket worth $448 million was sold in California Saturday night.

The earliest the victor could claim their prize was 8 a.m. Sunday; the victor will have one year from the draw date to come forward.

A SOLE winning lottery ticket in the United States has bagged the entire £350 million jackpot, officials have confirmed.

The winning combination of numbers for the massive payout was 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number was 3.

The victor has not come forward yet.

Delawareans' hoping to cash in on the latest mega Powerball jackpot were disappointed.

The liquor store that sold the ticket will receive a $1 million "retailer bonus". No one had matched all winning numbers since April 1.

The 10th largest Powerball drawing was held Saturday night.

"And it feels good", said Matthew Alberre, co-owner of the Marietta Liquor & Deli in Sun City.

Saturday's jackpot is the seventh-largest in Powerball's history, according to the California lottery. The victor has a year to come forward and claim the prize, and can choose to cash in a prize of $279.1 million or to receive the full amount in installments over 29 years.

The store is at 27985 Bradley Road in the Sun City community in the city of Menifee.

The year began terribly for the family because Alberre's father was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.

That anonymous victor, described by his spokeswoman as a USA manufacturing plant worker who graduated from Purdue University, chose the lump-sum cash option of $263.5 million when he came forward in March. Both prize amounts would be before taxes are deducted.

Menifee has about 89,000 residents. The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
