There is a Powerball winner. Of the millions of tickets sold for Wednesday night's drawing, one of them matched all six numbers to win the 254 million-dollar jackpot. The winning ticket was sold at the Dierbergs grocery store on Tesson Ferry Road in south St. Louis County according to Missouri Lottery officials.
The multi-state lottery game had gone without a top winner since November 29th, when one player in North Carolina won a jackpot worth 74-and-a-half million dollars. That prize still hasn't been claimed.
In addition, 23 players matched five of the six winning numbers in Wednesday's drawing to win at least 200-thousand dollars each.
The winning numbers are:

9, 19, 29, 42 and 53. The Powerball is 17.
