One Winner In $245 Million Powerball Jackpot

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The winning Powerball ticket for a $254 million jackpot has been sold in Connecticut, and it’s the largest prize in state lottery history.

The one ticket with all six winning numbers from Wednesday’s drawing was sold at an undisclosed location in Fairfield County, and lottery officials are waiting for the winner to step forward. The jackpot winner can claim a $254 million annuity paid over 29 years or a lump sum of nearly $152 million in cash.

Wednesday’s winning Powerball numbers were 12-14-34-39-46, Powerball 36. There were nearly 2.3 million tickets with winning combinations sold nationwide, including about 29,000 in Connecticut.

Players have until April 30, 2012, to claim their prizes.

State officials say the previous record in Connecticut was a $59.5 million Powerball jackpot in June 2005.
