1 lucky winner hits $217 million Powerball jackpot
DES MOINES, Iowa (WABC) -- The good news is that one ticket matched the winning numbers in Wednesday night's $217 million Powerball drawing.
The bad news is that it probably wasn't you, unless you bought your ticket in Virginia.
There were also $1 million winning tickets sold in New York state and Connecticut.
The cash option for the big payout checks in at more than $130 million before taxes.
In November, winners in Arizona and Missouri split the second largest lottery jackpot of all time.
As always, you can see the winning numbers during Eyewitness News at 11 on Channel 7 and get winning lottery numbers anytime on 7online.
