Winning $336 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Newport, RI
(NEWPORT, R.I.) — Lottery officials announced Monday morning that the winning Powerball ticket worth $336.4 million was sold at a Stop & Shop in the tiny enclave of Newport, R.I., though the winner has not yet come forward.
The supermarket is located at 250 Bellevue Ave., lottery officials said during a press conference Monday.
Over the weekend, it was announced that the winner of the Saturday night drawing was from Rhode Island, but the location of the ticket sale had not yet been disclosed.
If the winner chooses the cash option, the lump sum payment will be a record $210 million — the highest cash jackpot ever for the Powerball game.
The winner made a $9 wager and has one year to claim the ticket before it expires, a spokeswoman for the lottery said.
The winning jackpot numbers drawn Saturday were 1-10-37-52-57, with a Powerball of 11.
