Player Wins $336 Million Powerball Jackpot

Lottery officials say someone who played the Powerball in Rhode Island has won the $336.4 million jackpot.

The new multimillionaire has not stepped forward and the lottery has not said where the winning ticket was sold. To win, the player had to match all of Saturday's five numbers, 1-10-37-52-57, and Powerball number 11.

Because of rising sales, the jackpot more than doubled from $173.5 million on Feb. 1.

Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    The story says that the lottery more than doubled from Feb. 1st at $173.5 million to $336.4 milion, but at my school if you double 173.5 you come up with more than 336.4. I think WITN must be employing some of Obama economists.
