Wait is on for RI Powerball Winner to Step Forward

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Rhode Island Lottery officials are waiting for a lucky ticket holder to step forward and claim Saturday's $336.4 million Powerball jackpot.

Officials still aren't saying where the single ticket was sold. The winning numbers were 1-10-37-52-57 and Powerball number 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.
