Powerball Lottery officials say one ticket, sold in Florida, has matched all of the numbers drawn in Saturday night’s Powerball game, and is worth, in annuity value terms, more than $590-million.
Powerball officials had earlier estimated the jackpot would reach $600-million.
It was confirmed on Sunday morning that the grand prize winner, representing the richest prize in Powerball history and the second-largest United States lottery prize ever, was sold in Zephyrhills, Florida, a suburb of Tampa. Only a MegaMillions lottery jackpot of $656-million, shared by three ticket-holders in March, 2012, was worth more money.
Pennsylvania Lottery officials say two tickets were sold in this state which contained the first five numbers drawn, but not the “Power Ball” number, and are both worth one million dollars. Two other Pennsylvania tickets held four of the first five numbers, plus the “Power Ball” number, and were purchased with the dollar-extra “Power Play” option. Those tickets are worth $40,000. Other tickets with four of five numbers and the “Power Ball” without the “Power Play” option are worth $10,000.
