Powerball Jackpot Back To $40 Million After Winner Hits At $337 Million
[ Life]

The Powerball Jackpot was up to $337 million on Wednesday before someone finally won it. The ticket was sold in Michigan, reportedly at a Sunoco gas station.

The winning numbers were: 06 27 46 51 56, Powerball: 21. Odds of winning the jackpot, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.

8 tickets were sold that won Wednesday’s $1 million Match 5 prize. Two were sold in Indiana, and there were winners in Kansas, Kentucky, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia. An additional ticket in Nebraska added the Power Play to win $ 2 million. 2,689,630 tickets won cash prizes for a total of $27 million.

As could be expected, there’s a fair amount of both congratulations and bitterness about the jackpot being expressed on Twitter:

The Jackpot is now sitting at its guaranteed $40 million, with the next drawing to take place on Saturday night.
