Winning Ticket for $400M Powerball Jackpot Sold in South CarolinaSept. 19, 2013
The winning Powerball ticket for the estimated $400 million jackpot was sold in South Carolina, according to lottery officials.
The winning numbers are 7, 10, 22, 32, 35, and Powerball 19.
There were two Match 5 winners from Florida and Pennsylvania, who will each win a cool $2 million and six additional $1 million winners. Wednesday night's drawing for the $400 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.
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.
Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, Fla., was named the winner of the largest Powerball jackpot in history. Mackenzie won the $590 million Powerball bonanza last May after she bought her ticket at a Publix Supermarket. The second-largest grand prize of $587 million was split by two ticketholders from Arizona and Missouri last November.
Powerball, ticket prices doubled from $1 to $2 in January 2012, which has accounted for the swelling jackpots and tons of media attention.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
