Winning Powerball Ticket Sold in Michigan
(NEW YORK) — A ticket sold in Michigan matched all five numbers, including the Powerball, to win the jackpot estimated at $337 million, according to Powerball.com.
Andi Brancato, a Michigan lottery spokesman, tells ABC News Radio that the winning ticket was sold at a Sunoco gas station in Lapeer, Mich. There is no word yet on the identity of the lucky winner.
Wednesday night’s winning numbers were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and the Powerball was 21.
“We had the single winning ticket sold in Michigan. It was sold in Lapeer at a gas station there. So we are waiting now to hear from the winner. That could happen at any time,” said Brancato.
There was also one Match 5 winner in Nebraska that won $2 million and seven Match 5 winning tickets in Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia that won $1 million.
It was the third largest Powerball jackpot in the lottery’s history, according to Brancato. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million and the odds of winning any prize are 1 in 31, according to Powerball.com.
The national drawing is held in 42 states, including the District of Columbia. No one has won the big Powerball prize since June 23, when a couple from Connecticut won $60 million.
