A massive $447.8 million jackpot is up for grabs for the lucky person who picked the winning numbers.

The winning numbers for the $435 million Powerball are 32, 26, 20, 38, 58.

The $435 million jackpot will be the largest since July 2016, and the 10th largest USA lottery drawing in history. Tickets cost $2 per play, and $3 with the Power Play option.

Earlier estimates had the jackpot at an estimated $435 million, after Wednesday's drawing failed to yield a victor for the top prize as no one had matched all the numbers since April 1. Lottery officials said one ticket, purchased in Sun City, California, matched all the numbers for the grand prize.

The numbers have been drawn for the 10th largest lottery prize in USA history.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning $7 are 1 in 579 while the odds of winning $4 are 1 in 92. The estimated cash value for Saturday's drawing is $273 million.

Powerball had a record jackpot in January 2016, with three ticket holders sharing $1.586 billion. The money comes from a separate fund that is not part of the winner's jackpot.

The lump sum payout for the winning ticket would be $279.1 million.
