$456M Powerball ticket sold in Pennsylvania

A single ticket sold in Pennsylvania won the Powerball jackpot in Saturday's drawing.

No information is known about the Nashville victor until the prize is claimed.

The ticket matched all five white balls and the Powerball to win the jackpot, the eighth largest in Powerball history.

That means the drawing on Wednesday, Mar. 21 will be worth $40 million with a cash option of $24 million.

They did not say in a news release where in Pennsylvania the ticket was sold. In Michigan, there were 65,851 winners.

Someone got the "Luck of the Irish" as one Powerball ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing. Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of becoming a millionaire by matching five numbers is 1 in 11.7 million. Tickets cost $2 each. That jackpot now stands at an estimated $377 million. The drawing is at 7:29 p.m. Deadline is 7:08 p.m.
