$400 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In South Carolina

Powerball Lottery officials say the lone jackpot-winning ticket purchased in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing was sold in Lexington, South Carolina.

Previous to the drawing, game officials estimated the cash annuity value of the jackpot at a whopping $400 million.  The cash value was listed at $223 million, or about $134 million after taxes.  Those numbers will probably be revised sometime today.

One Powerball ticket sold in Pennsylvania contained the first five numbers drawn, but not the all-important Powerball number.  That ticket is worth one million dollars.  Three other players had tickets with 4 of the 5 numbers, plus the Powerball figure, and which were purchased with the Power Play option.  Those tickets are each worth $40,000.

For Saturday’s drawing, the annuity value of the Powerball jackpot has been reset to a “mere” $40 million.
