Lottery officials announced that someone from Rhode Island, who played the enormous Powerball lottery game, won the $336.4 million jackpot. However, another $1 million ticket was sold in Brookfield, Wis., a suburb of Milwaukee.
The Brookfield ticket reportedly had the five regular numbers, but not the Powerball. The lucky ticket matched all five numbers and the Powerball number won the $336.4 million jackpot . The sole winner, however, has not stepped forever to claim the prize, reported the AP.
The prize was the third highest in the Powerball lottery. Because of rising sales and a price increase from $1 to $2, the jackpot dramatically increased, nearly doubled, from $173.5 million on Feb. 1 to $336.4 million, reported the AP. Before the price increase, having five numbers earned a lucky winner approximately $200,000, reported Madison.com.
The winners have 180 days to claim their prize.
Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The winning numbers were 1-10-37-52-57. However, players can still win smaller sums of money if they match some of the numbers.
Currently, the Powerball jackpot is up to $40 million for Wednesday's drawing.
