There's a big winner in the U.S. today, the person holding the sole winning Powerball ticket from Wednesday's drawing. The jackpot is worth $259,900,000.
The Powerball website announced early Thursday that one winning ticket was sold in South Carolina. It did not name a town or vendor.
The winning numbers are 14, 24, 31, 43 and 51. The Powerball is 27, and the Powerplay Multiplier is 5.
Lottery vendors say they saw a surge of people buying Powerball tickets as the jackpot swelled Wednesday. Employees at the Sheetz on Fire Tower Rd. in Greenville say hundreds came in for Powerball tickets on Wednesday.
