WOW: Winning numbers drawn for $435 million Powerball jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The winning Powerball numbers have been drawn for the jackpot that’s climbed above $400 million for the first time in nearly three months.

An Indiana lottery official says the sole winning ticket for an estimated $435 million Powerball jackpot was sold in the Indiana city of Lafayette.

The numbers are 10-13-28-52-61 and Powerball 2.

During Wednesday night’s drawing, it was announced that the jackpot jumped to an estimated $435 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The top prize drops back to $40 million for the next drawing Saturday night.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are incredibly small, at one in 292.2 million.
