Someone in Missouri may be $254 million richer.

Lottery officials said the winning Powerball ticket was sold in that state, but the lucky winner has not yet been identified.

Two people in North Carolina matched five of the winning numbers. Each will get a $200,000 prize.

The winning numbers were 9, 19, 29, 42, 53 and the Powerball was 17 and the power play was 3. The jackpot for Saturday's drawing is now $15 million.

The Powerball lottery had not had a top winner since November when one player in Halifax County won a jackpot worth more than $74 million. So far, no one has come forward to claim that jackpot.
