May 28, 2009

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) -- A Powerball jackpot ticket worth $232 million was sold in the South Dakota town of Winner.

State lottery officials say the owner has yet to come forward but they plan to hold a news conference Thursday morning in Pierre to offer details.

They say it's the ninth-largest Powerball jackpot ever.

Out of the millions of tickets sold for Wednesday night's drawing, only one matched all six winning numbers: 5, 6, 12, 16 and 21. The Powerball was 7.

A dozen players came close to the big money by matching five numbers. They're worth at least $200,000 and were sold in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin.
