KNOXVILLE, Tenn., June 13 (UPI) -- Someone in Tennessee won the largest-ever lottery jackpot in the state in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing -- $259.8 million.

The winning Powerball ticket was purchased in Knoxville, though the lucky winner had yet to come forward.

Should the winner choose to take a lump-sum payment for the ticket, they'd instantly be $153.5 million richer.

The winner has 180 days to claim the prize at Nashville's lottery headquarters.
