SAN ANTONIO – A lucky customer bought a winning Powerball ticket at a store in the San Antonio area for Wednesday night’s drawing — but it wasn’t the jackpot.
The Texas Lottery states that a Stripes store in Lytle, located at Interstate 35 and McDonald Street, sold a ticket that matched all five white numbers drawn – 16, 27, 59, 62, 63. The ticket did not match the red Powerball, 23.
The customer purchased the power play, bringing the winnings to $2 million.
The Powerball jackpot is now an estimated $725 million, with a cash value of $345.7 million.
This ranks as the eighth-largest prize in the game’s history and the third-largest prize this year.
The next drawing is on Saturday night.
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
