Here’s the full statement that was released by Powerball officials, as found on the official national Powerball website:
A single ticket sold in Pennsylvania won the Powerball jackpot in the Saturday, March 17 drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls and the Powerball to win the jackpot worth an estimated $456.7 million; $273.9 million cash value – the 8th largest jackpot in Powerball game history!
The winning numbers in the March 17 drawing were: 22-57-59-60-66, Powerball 7, Power Play 2X.
Three tickets matched all five white balls in the drawing. The tickets were sold in California, Missouri and Texas.
The ticket sold in Texas won a $2 million prize after the 2X multiplier was drawn, because it included the Power Play option.
No location was given as to where the winning ticket was sold in Pennsylvania. In California, the ticket sold that picked 5 out of 5 numbers correctly – but not the powerball — was bought at Ed’s Liquor on Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica. That ticket will pay $1.2 million.
There was no location given as to where the 5 out of 5 runner-up tickets were sold in Missouri or Texas.
