Minn. Powerball jackpot winner is state's 22nd


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota lottery officials say they expect to announce soon where the state's winning ticket was sold for Wednesday night's massive Powerball jackpot.

Minnesota had a single winning ticket for the $448 million jackpot, with two others sold in New Jersey.

Spokeswoman Debbie Hoffmann says it's Minnesota's 22nd jackpot winner in the big game. Hoffmann says the state's big jackpot winners have typically waited about a week before contacting lottery officials.

The winner has a year from the date of drawing to claim it.

Hoffman says winners usually take an immediate payout rather than installments over time. The Minnesota share in a lump sum would be $86 million before taxes.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
