Powerball lottery officials said Sunday morning that a winning ticket to Saturday’s record drawing was sold in Florida, and that state lottery officials will have details later. The ticket matches all six numbers, the AP reported .

The winning numbers were: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and the Powerball is 11.

The AP, citing a Powerball official in Iowa, said the ticket for the largest Powerball jackpot ever  — at more than $590 million — was sold in the Sunshine State. That means the jackpot resets at $40 million for Wednesday’s drawing. Had nobody won, the jackpot would have soared  to about $925 million, according to Kelly Cripe, spokeswoman for the Texas Lottery, which is part of the multi-state lotteries.

The jackpot, with a cash value of $376.9 million, marks the largest in Powerball history, surpassing  a $587.6 million jackpot  split by winners in Arizona and Missouri in November.

The  largest lottery jackpot  in U.S. history was $656 million in the  Mega Millions  game in March 2012. That was split by three tickets sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

The Powerball game is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A single ticket costs $2, and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510.
