RI Lottery officials say $336 million Powerball ticket sold at Newport supermarket
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) ' Rhode Island Lottery officials say the winning ticket in Saturday's $336.4 million Powerball jackpot was sold at a Stop & Shop supermarket in Newport.
Officials said Monday that no one has come forward yet to claim the prize.
The winning numbers were 1-10-37-52-57 and the Powerball was 11.
The jackpot was the third largest in Powerball history. The ticket price increased from $1 to $2 last month, and rising sales nearly doubled the jackpot from $173.5 million on Feb. 1.
Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is about 1 in 175 million.
