The ticket matched all five white balls drawn in the lottery - 20-40-47-55-63 - but did not match the red Powerball of 5.
Lottery officials said the ticket was bought with a $1 Power Play option which allowed the winner to double their money.
While not as substantial as the million-dollar payday, lottery officials say 64,700 other players won modest cash prizes in the drawing.
The Powerball jackpot swelled to $523M for Saturday's drawing.
