Someone who bought a Powerball ticket in Missouri is a lot richer today. A single winning ticket for last night's drawing -- with a jackpot worth $224,200,000 -- was sold somewhere in Missouri.

There's no word yet on just where the winning ticket was purchased.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were nine of those. They were sold in Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and West Virginia.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's drawing were:

16-26-34-35-41 and the Powerball was 24.
