Arizona lottery ticket wins $188M Powerball jackpot

PowerballPowerball: Arizona lottery ticket wins $188M Powerball jackpot

Update: retailer information and new anonymity law

By Todd Northrop

If you bought your Powerball ticket in Arizona, it's time to give it some extra scrutiny this morning, since one of the Powerball tickets sold in Arizona for the Wednesday drawing is now worth $188.9 million.

It's the seventh time the Powerball jackpot has been won this year — the largest since Feb. 11, when three tickets sold in from North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas split a $564.1 million grand prize.

The winning Powerball numbers drawn Wednesday were 6, 8, 13, 37, and 40 with Powerball number 11.  The Power Play was 2.

The ticket was purchased at a Glendale Quik Trip near 43rd Avenue and Union Hills Drive, according to the Arizona Lottery.

The winning Powerball ticket hasn't been sold in Arizona since 2012, Arizona Lottery Executive Director Tony Bouie said.

The Quik Trip where the ticket was sold will receive a $25,000 commission from the lottery, he said.

"If you know someone who bought a ticket, tell them to check it," he said. "If you bought a ticket, check it."

Aside from the jackpot winner, another 3 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Idaho and 2 from North Carolina.

None of those winners purchased the Power Play option for an extra $1 per play.  If they had, their second-prize amount would have been automatically doubled to $2 million.

The $188.9 million jackpot started building from its $40 million starting point on April 22.  It rolled 12 times before getting hit on the 13th consecutive drawing.

The jackpot has a cash value of $120 million, or $84 million after tax withholdings.  The overall odds of winning the jackpot were 1 in 175,223,510.

The Arizona winner has 180 days to come forward.

Under a recently passed Arizona law which goes into effect July 1, the winners may choose to remain anonymous for 90 days after they claim their prize.

Congrats to the winner/winners. It's kind of annoying that both jackpots were won, in a span of 24hrs. No more monster jackpot to play with. Sad

      I Agree! I'm surprise no winners from Cali or Fla! Not even 5 numbers right in either state won! Congrats to the winner, and congrats to the 2 NC winners and the Idaho winner also!

        Looking at the post Todd, looks like it has the wrong winning numbers showing that was drawn last night! Or Am I reading the post wrong? 6-8-13-37-40+11 are the winning numbers from Wednesday night..6-3-15..It's showing numbers from the big 3 winners on 2-11-15..

          Doh!  My mistake, I have fixed the article.  Thanks for pointing it out.

                  With both MM and PB jackpots being won, it's time to take a little break.

                    I Agree!....Congratulations to the Winners of both Jackpots- It's time for me focus like a laser on our State SLP jackpot.  It's at a nice comfortable retirement sum.

                      Is it just me or was last nite powerball draw delayed. Maybe just a technically problem but the draw was delayed for about 10-15 mins and then there was a winner.

                      Congratulations to the winner

                        I noticed the same thing.  I didn't have a ticket in last nights draw,  happy my numbers didn't come up

                          It was as an odd drawing because the results were not aired live on TV affiliates around the country.And they are saying the delay was caused by "technical problems" in the studio. But the fact that there was a winner is making me think twice. I guess will never know what really happened.
