The only jackpot-winning ticket sold for Saturday night's $59.5 million multistate Powerball drawing was sold in Connecticut, a spokeswoman for the state lottery said.
The winner had not come forward and officials were not immediately sure where the ticket was sold, Diane Patterson said.
The jackpot is the largest in the 32-year history of the Connecticut State Lottery, Patterson said, and came eight years to the day since the last time a Connecticut resident won the Powerball jackpot.
A New Britain resident shared an $8 million jackpot on June 25, 1997, she said.
The winner can take a lump sum payment, or take the winnings over 30 years, Patterson said.
She recommended that the winner put the winning ticket in a safe place, such as a safety deposit box, and contact a lawyer, before contacting the lottery.
"We're very excited here at the lottery," she said. "Someone is really going to have some major changes in their life."
