Winning Powerball Jackpot Ticket Sold in SC
(NEW YORK) -- The winning Powerball ticket for the estimated $400 million jackpot was sold in South Carolina, according to lottery officials. The winning numbers were 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and Powerball 19. There were two Match 5 winners from Florida and Pennsylvania, who will each win $2 million and six additional $1 million winners.
Wednesday night's drawing for the $399.4 million jackpot was considered the fifth largest in U.S. history. A $656 million Mega Millions ticket sold in March 2012 still stands as the largest jackpot of all time.
Powerball ticket prices doubled from $1 to $2 in January 2012, which has accounted for the swelling jackpots and tons of media attention.
Odds of matching all six numbers are about 1 in 175 million, according to the game's website, which means you're 25 times more likely to win an Academy Award in your lifetime.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
