Winning $400M Powerball ticket sold near Columbia, South Carolina


The powerball jackpot is back to a measly $40 million dollars Thursday morning. That's because lottery officials revealed a winner in the mega-$400 million dollar drawing.

The winning numbers, 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and the powerball 19, were listed on a ticket sold at a gas station in Lexington, South Carolina. Officials say the ticket was sold at the Murphy USA station, just off Interstate 20.

The actual value of the jackpot is $399.4 million, with a direct cash option of $233 million.

It's the largest Powerball winning ticket sold in South Carolina and the fourth largest in the history of the game.

South Carolina also had a $1 million winning ticket sold at a gasoline station in Hampton. That ticket matched the first five numbers.

In May, a Florida widow won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history - a $590 million pot.
