Aug 16 A single ticket sold in Michigan matched
all five numbers and the red "Powerball" to win the $320 million
Powerball lottery jackpot, the 10th largest prize in U.S.
history, lottery officials said on Thursday.
The winning numbers drawn on Wednesday were 6, 27, 46, 51,
56 and the red Powerball, 21. The odds of having a winning
ticket were one in 175 million, according to the lottery.
The largest U.S. jackpot was a $656 million prize claimed in
March by the owners of three winning tickets in the MegaMillions
multi-state game. The $320 million Powerball prize was the
fourth-largest in the history of the game, which is played in 42
states plus the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
