PASSAIC, N.J. -

New Jersey Lottery officials say the lone winning ticket for a $338.3 million Powerball jackpot has been validated.

Lottery officials say the ticket holder went to Eagle Liquors in Passaic and had the ticket validated at around 4:30 p.m. Monday. The liquor store is where the ticket was sold.

But the officials say they don't yet know the winner's name.

Lottery officials say it was the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. The numbers drawn Saturday were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31.

The cash value of the jackpot after taxes is about $152 million, if the winner chooses a lump-sum payment of $221 million over an annuity.

Passaic is 15 miles northwest of New York City.
