DES MOINES, Iowa — Tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas have matched all six numbers to win a Powerball jackpot that had been estimated at $500 million.
**Wednesday night’s winning Powerball numbers are: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball is 19; Power Play is 3x**
Lottery officials announced the jackpot winners Thursday morning on the Powerball website. Officials didn’t immediately confirm the final amount of the prize or which cities produced the winners.
If the jackpot stands at the $500 million estimated Wednesday, it would be the fifth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
No one had won the Powerball jackpot for more than two months, so the prize grew gradually from its $40 million starting point. That figure is now listed on the website as the current jackpot for the next drawing.
People lined up for tickets around the country in hopes they could beat the odds and win the giant prize, including here in Cleveland.
