OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ One Oklahoma ticket sold in Saturday night's Powerball lottery drawing matched five numbers, but missed the Powerball, making it worth $200,000.

There was only one winning ticket sold for Saturday's $365-million jackpot, the largest in the country's history. Nebraska Lottery officials confirmed that winning ticket was sold in Lincoln.

As of early Sunday, no one had come forward to claim the jackpot, said Nebraska Lottery spokesman Brian Rockey.

The six numbers drawn were 15-17-43-44-48 and the Powerball number 29.

It is the first jackpot winner since Oklahoma joined the multistate lottery game on January 12.

The jackpot prize goes back to $15-million for Wednesday.

There were 39 tickets, including the Oklahoma ticket, worth $200,000 that were sold for Saturday's drawing.

The others were sold in Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, New Mexico, and Rhode Island. Two each were sold in Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Louisiana, Missouri, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

There were six $200,000 winners in Indiana, three in Oregon, seven in Pennsylvania and four in Tennessee.
