The winning ticket to Wednesday night's Powerball drawing worth about $40 million was sold in an East Texas town, a first for the Lone Star state, lottery officials said.
The ticket was sold at the Lone Star Food Store in the town of Bells, east of Sherman in Grayson County.
The ticket matched all six numbers (9, 14, 17, 49, and 57, with Powerball number 2) in the drawing for an estimated $40 million.
The ticket was the first Powerball jackpot-winning ticket sold in Texas since the Texas Lottery joined the game in 2010, agency officials said.
The holder chose the cash value option, lottery officials said, and has 180 days to claim the prize.
