CHERRY HILL, N.J. -

Excitement and mystery has surrounded the Garden State after it was announced a single ticket sold in New Jersey matched all six numbers in the Powerball drawing.

The jackpot, drawn Saturday, is worth $338.3 million, lottery officials said.

Now, many in New Jersey have one question: Who is $338 million richer?

Jack Patel, who works at a Cherry Hill 7-Eleven store, tells FOX 29 he sold $5,000 worth of tickets Saturday and hopes he may have sold the big one.

"It was really crazy," Patel said.

The Associated Press reports Saturday's drawing was the 13th held in the days since a Virginia man won a $217 million jackpot in February.

Lottery officials in New Jersey have said they plan to release the details about the winning ticket on Monday, the AP reported.
