A New Jersey winner has got the winning ticket to the $338 million Powerball fortune that was up for grabs last night.

The numbers are: 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31.

No ticket matched all the numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing.

The jackpot had been estimated at $320 million but a late ticket sales surge pushed it to $388 million.

The lump-sum cash option is $211 million.

Lottery officials say the current jackpot is the sixth highest in history. No one has won the Powerball jackpot since early February.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was in November 2012, and the holders of two winning tickets – one purchased in Arizona and the other in Missouri – shared $587.5 million.
