Powerball® ticket worth $1 million purchased at Jeffersonville retailer
INDIANAPOLIS -- Someone who purchased a Powerball ticket at a Jeffersonville, Ind., retailer for last night's drawing is now holding a $1 million winner.
The ticket, which was the only one in the nation to match the first five numbers but not the Powerball number, was purchased at Circle K at 3830 Hamburg Pike in Jeffersonville.
The winning numbers drawn were: 1-36-40-52-53 PB:20.
No one nationwide matched all six numbers, so Saturday's Powerball jackpot has grown to an estimated $70 million.
