(AP) — A single winning ticket for the $731.1 million Powerball jackpot was sold by a store in Lonaconing, Maryland. The Maryland Lottery says it was sold at Coney Market.
The Allegany County store will receive a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. This was the fifth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever. The drawing was only a day after nobody won the even-larger Mega Millions prize, which now stands at $970 million.
Winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22. Neither jackpot had seen a winner since mid-September, allowing the prizes to grow steadily for months.
