North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Texas Tickets Win Powerball
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas have matched all six numbers to split a $564.1 million Powerball jackpot
Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager for the Multi-State Lottery Association, says the Puerto Rico ticket was the first Powerball jackpot winner ever sold outside the continental United States. Puerto Rico joined Powerball less than a year ago.
Dooley had no immediate information on the specific locations of where the tickets were sold.
Should the winners select the lump sum option, each would get a one-third share of $381,138,450.16 before taxes.
The jackpot was the third-largest in Powerball history and the fifth-largest U.S. lottery prize. The jackpot now goes back to $40 million.
The winning numbers in Wednesday's drawing were: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball 19.
