RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) -- The only winning ticket for a $314.3 million Powerball lottery prize was sold in this city on the Indiana-Ohio state line, lottery officials said Sunday.
Lottery officials won't know who holds that ticket until someone comes forward, said Mark Sirkin, a spokesman for the Hoosier Lottery.
"We don't how many people _ if it's one person, or a hundred people _ is the winner. We have no idea. Whoever it is, they're wealthy," Sirkin said.
The ticket bearing the winning numbers _ 2, 8, 23, 29, 35 and the Powerball: 19 _ that were drawn Saturday night was sold at a Speedway convenience store.
The store in Richmond, about 70 miles east of Indianapolis, will receive $100,000 from the lottery for selling the ticket.
Aside from the winning ticket, a ticket matching five of the six numbers was sold in Munster and is worth $200,000, said Kathryn A. Densborn, Hoosier Lottery executive director.
"Indiana is a very lucky state," Densborn said. "It's a big day in Indiana."
Powerball, which began in 1985, is played in 29 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The record jackpot was $365 million won by eight workers at a Nebraska meatpacking plant in February 2006.
