COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Officials with the South Carolina Education Lottery say a $400 million winning ticket in the latest Powerball drawing was sold in Lexington in central South Carolina.

Lottery officials said early Thursday that the ticket was sold at the Murphy USA station. The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 7-10-22-32-35, with the Powerball of 19.

The actual value 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.

From our news partner, WITI in Milwaukee:

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Powerball lottery jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will be at least $400 million. That’s because no one matched the winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing. The lump sum cash prize is an estimated $223.6 million.

Saturday’s winning numbers were 1, 17, 25, 37, 44 and the Powerball was 20.

Powerball is a combined large jackpot game which is played in 42 states. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 9:59 p.m., five white balls are drawn from a drum with 59 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red balls.

The odds of winning the top prize in the Powerball lottery are 1 in 175,223,510. The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1 million paid in cash. But you have a 1 in 55 chance of winning of $4.
