The winning numbers were 11, 17, 21, 23, 32 and the powerball 5.

According to lottery officials, only one ticket purchased in New Hampshire matched all five numbers plus the powerball.

There were three tickets in California that matched five out of six numbers, including one purchased in Long Beach.

Each of those tickets are worth $785,065, according to a tweet from the California Lottery.

The grand prize hasn't been in the neighborhood of $500 million since the beginning of the year, when it hit $528.5 exactly one week before reaching a record $1.5 billion, a news release from the California Lottery stated.

Saturday's big winner would have the option to take the winnings as a lump sum of approximately $330.6 million, prior to federal taxes, according to the release.  Otherwise, the winning amount would be spread out in payments over a span of 30 years.

The last Powerball winner was in New Jersey on May 7; the winning ticket was worth $429.6 million.

The approximate odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 292 million, according to Powerball.com, which is run by the Multi-State Lottery Association. Players have roughly 1 in 11 million odds of matching five numbers and winning $1 million.

Drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday at 7:59 p.m. PST.
