Someone got the "Luck of the Irish" as one Powerball ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing. The lucky winning ticket was sold in Pennsylvania for an estimated $455 million Powerball jackpot, officials said. 

The winning numbers for the jackpot Saturday were: 22, 57, 59, 60, and 66. The Powerball is 7. The PowerPlay is 2x.

Over two months without a jackpot winner pushed the top prize for Saturday's Powerball drawing to an estimated $455 million. The cash option is worth $269.4 million. 

There were also two second-prize tickets sold, one in Texas worth $1 million, and one in South Carolina valued at $2 million. The ticket sold in Texas won an additional $1 million because the buyer spent an extra $1 to exercise the Power Play option.

Nineteen drawings have been held without a top prize winner since a New Hampshire woman captured a $559.7 million jackpot for the Jan, 6 drawing. She chose the cash option for a pre-tax lump sum of $352 million. That's the seventh largest jackpot ever won in the United States.

A Powerball ticket costs $2. You can watch drawings on FOX 8 on Wednesday and Saturday after WVUE FOX 8 News at 9:00 p.m.
