RAYMOND, N.H. (AP) — Folks in New Hampshire are eager to learn who among them holds the winning ticket to a $487 million Powerball jackpot.

New Hampshire lottery officials tell television station WMUR someone bought the winning ticket at the local Hannaford supermarket in Raymond, a southern New Hampshire town of about 10,000.

The winning numbers were 11-17-21-23-32, with a Powerball of 5.

The lump sum option is worth $330.6 million.

By midday Sunday, the jackpot winner in Saturday night's drawing had not come forward. It was the eighth largest U.S. lottery jackpot.

New Hampshire had a lucky night. Someone in the northern New Hampshire town of Littleton was among 14 people in 10 states who won $1 million for matching the first five numbers.

Someone in Pennsylvania bought a ticket worth $2 million.
