$336M Powerball ticket sold at RI supermarket

CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) – Officials at the Rhode Island supermarket that sold the winning ticket in Saturday's $336.4 million Powerball jackpot are excited about the windfall the winner or winners will receive.

Stop & Shop spokeswoman Suzi Robinson says they're excited and happy for the customer, who purchased the winning ticket at a store in Newport.

The winner has not come forward yet.

The winning numbers were 1-10-37-52-57 and the Powerball was 11.

A lottery spokeswoman says the jackpot is the sixth largest in U.S. history.

The ticket price for Powerball increased from $1 to $2 last month. 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.
