DETROIT (CBS/AP)- A lone winning ticket in the $337 million Powerball drawing has been sold at a Michigan gas station but the identity of the lucky owner was still unknown.
The winning numbers in the Wednesday night drawing were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and Powerball 21.
"It turns out that it was the third largest Powerball jackpot ever and the seventh largest jackpot in U.S. history. It ... (had a) cash value of $241 million," said Michigan Lottery spokesperson Andi Brancatto.
The Michigan Lottery says the ticket was sold at a Sunoco gas station in Lapeer, about 45 miles north of Detroit.
In addition to the jackpot-winning ticket, there were eight tickets that matched five of the winning numbers to win $1 million. Two of those tickets were sold in Indiana. The others were sold in Kansas, Kentucky, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
There was also a ticket sold in Nebraska that added the Power Play to win $2 million.
