— -- The sole winning ticket of Saturday's $429.6 million Powerball jackpot was sold at a 7-Eleven in Trenton, New Jersey, state lottery officials confirmed to ABC News Sunday.

The ticket was purchased in New Jersey's capital as a cash ticket and is valued at $284 million, state lottery officials said.

Officials said this is the seventh largest Powerball jackpot in history.

The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.

Andrea Shin, who has owned the 7-Eleven store for 10 years, told ABC News today she's shocked.

"The Powerball ... the chances are ridiculous," she said. "It's exciting.

"I'm just happy that it was somebody that's close," she said.

"The people around here can use it," said Shin's husband, Luis Soler, who also works at the Trenton store. "Whoever it is hopefully does some really good things with it."

The winner has yet to come forward.

"It's a very small neighborhood ... so we see a lot of the same people every day," Soler said. "I'm excited for them."

"Congratulations to 7-Eleven for selling this winning ticket and to the fortunate ticketholder who purchased the ticket," said Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery executive director. "We look forward to meeting the winner of this record-setting jackpot."

The winning numbers drawn Saturday evening were: 25, 66, 44, 5, 26. The Powerball was 9.

Hedinger added, "We expect that the winner or winners will take their time before claiming the prize and consult with the appropriate professionals that can assist them in navigating these unchartered waters. Certainly though, we will be anxiously awaiting the phone call."
