Somebody in Michigan may be very happy soon.
Lottery officials say a winning ticket for the estimated $337 million Powerball jackpot was purchased in Michigan. Also there were eight tickets that won the $1 million Match 5 prize. Two of those tickets were bought in Indiana, the others were purchased in Kansas, Kentucky, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia, lottery officials said.
The winning numbers were 6,27,46,51,56 and 21.
The prize for the national lottery, which is held in 42 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia, swelled Saturday after no one hit all six numbers.
The game's largest prize to date was $365 million, which was awarded in 2006 to a group of eight co-workers at a Nebraska meat-packing plant.
In 2005, a group of four in Oregon won a $340 million jackpot, considered the second largest.FULL STORY
