powerball692A single winning ticket in the $400 million Powerball jackpot drawing on Wednesday night was sold in South Carolina, the Multi-State Lottery Association said.

The winning numbers – 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and Powerball 19 – netted the as-yet unidentified player the fourth-largest prize in the lottery’s history and the fifth-largest of any U.S. lottery, the Multi-State Lottery Association said.

    As usual I get that "Sorry this ticket is not a winner" on the machine. Grrrrrr!

    Out of Mega Millions, Super Lotto, and Powerball I've only won $50 bucks twice in 15 years and I win a dollar about every 6 months. Yet I keep com!ng back for more, I'm an idiot.
