A Powerball spokeswoman said no one had yet stepped forward to claim the prize, which soared to an annuity value of $420.9 million on Saturday because of a rush of late ticket-buying.

The winner can choose to accept the full jackpot in a series of annuity payments or take it all in a single lump sum now. The lump sum payment would add up to about $254.7 million, Powerball said. The largest Powerball prize ever, $1.6 billion, was divided among three winning tickets in January.

Powerball, one of several games run by the Multi-State Lottery Association, a nonprofit owned and operated by member states’ lotteries, is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
