There was one winning ticket in $730 million Powerball lottery

There is a single winner of the Powerball lottery on Wednesday.

“A single ticket sold in Maryland matched all six numbers in the Wednesday night Powerball drawing to win the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history,” according to an early Thursday morning release from Powerball.

The winning numbers were: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, plus Powerball 22, and Power Play multiplier 3X.

“The lucky ticket holder will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $731.1 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $546.8 million. Both prize options are before taxes,” the news release said.

This is only the fourth time the jackpot has crossed the $700 million mark, according to Powerball.

The Mega Millions jackpot is still in play.

No winners on Tuesday means Friday’s winner could potentially win an estimated $970 million.
