Someone in New England is — knowingly or not — $336.4 million richer.
A person who purchased a ticket in Rhode Island for the multistate Powerball lottery won the jackpot Saturday but has not yet come forward to claim it, the Associated Press reported. The winning numbers were 1-10-37-52-57, with Powerball number 11.
Powerball is played in most of the country, including Maryland. The lottery said more than 60,000 Powerball tickets purchased in Maryland were winners on Saturday, but none were "Match 5" million-dollar prizes.
The odds of winning the jackpot are less than 1 in 175 million.
According to the Associated Press, the winning ticket was sold at a Stop & Shop supermarket in Newport.
The lump sum cash payout will be $210 million — the highest Powerball total ever, lottery officials said. The jackpot was the third largest in Powerball history, officials said.
The jackpot is the sixth largest in U.S. history, lottery spokeswoman Melissa Juhnowski told the Associated Press. The largest jackpot was a $390 million Mega Millions prize won in March 2007, she said.
