Powerball: You didn't win (unless you're a reader from S.C.)


The winner of the fifth-highest jackpot in Powerball history is from South Carolina, The Associated Press reports.

According to officials with the South Carolina Education Lottery, the winner bought the $400 million ticket at a Murphy USA station in Lexington, located in the central part of the state.

The winning numbers for Wednesday night's drawings were 7-10-22-32-35, with the Powerball of 19.

South Carolina also had $1 million winning ticket that matched the first five numbers.

The winner of the $400 million jackpot will take home $225 million if they select the cash option when they bring forth the ticket.

Odds of winning Wednesday's jackpot were 1 in 175 million.

Minnesota's last big Powerball winner came last month when Paul White of Ham Lake won $149 million -- one-third of $448 million jackpot.

The $448 million jackpot was the fourth-biggest in Powerball history.
