A lucky New Mexico resident will soon be $1 million richer – if he or she claims the prize.

The New Mexico Lottery says a $1 million ticket was sold somewhere in the state for Saturday’s Powerball drawing. The state does not announce where the winning ticket was sold until after the prize is claimed.

The winning ticket correctly matched the white ball numbers of 3, 12, 31, 34 and 51, but missed the red Powerball that would have upped the jackpot to $90 million.

The winner must claim their prize at the lottery headquarters in Albuquerque within 90 days.
