UPDATE: $2M ticket was sold at North Jersey newsstand

After more than nine weeks without a top prize winner, someone has finally hit the Powerball jackpot. It wasn't won in New Jersey, though one ticket sold in the Garden State for Wednesday's drawing is worth $2 million.

The jackpot winning ticket for Wednesday's $435.3 million jackpot was sold in Indiana, Powerball officials said. Indianapolis television station WRTV reported the winner made the purchase at a gas station in Lafayette. The cash value of the prize is $263.4 million.

The $435.3 million jackpot ranks as the 10th largest in lottery history.

The jackpot had been $403 million since after Saturday's drawing but climbed in the hours before the drawing due to brisk ticket sales. 

15 largest lottery jackpot winners in history

The New Jersey ticket was one of seven to match five numbers but not the Powerball. Whoever bought it spent an extra $1 to exercise the Powerplay option and wins $2 million instead of $1 million. State lottery officials will reveal where the ticket was sold later Thursday.

The other second-prize tickets are each worth $1 million. Two were sold in New York, with one apiece purchased in Kansas, Massachusetts and Texas.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 10-13-28-52 and 61. The Powerball drawn was 2 and the megaplier of 2X doubled the prize for all non-jackpot winning prizes.

Friday's jackpot resets to $40 million with a cash option of $24.2 million.

No one had won the twice-weekly Powerball drawing in 67 days -- a ticket sold in Delaware hit the $121.6 million jackpot on Dec. 17.

Powerball tickets cost $2 apiece. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance  to win at least $1 million.

The game is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
