      Ticket sold in Calif. wins $425M Powerball jackpot

      TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Lottery officials say one ticket, sold in California, has matched all the winning numbers for the $425 million Powerball jackpot.

      The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 1, 17, 35, 49, 54 and a Powerball of 34.

      The drawing followed several consecutive drawings that produced no top winner, boosting the jackpot to $425.3 million. That's one of the largest in U.S. history -- but it's still far from the record.

      The nation's biggest lottery prize was a $656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012. The biggest Powerball jackpot was a $590.5 million prize won last May.

      Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
