At least three people won the $564 million Powerball jackpot

The Multi-State Lottery Association announced early Thursday that three tickets, sold in Texas, North Carolina, and Puerto Rico, had all six numbers right in the $564.1 million Powerball jackpot. Puerto Rico joined Powerball less than a year ago, and this is the first winning ticket outside the continental U.S. It was also the third-largest Powerball prize, and the No. 5 top lottery prize in the U.S. The winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawings: 25, 11, 54, 13, 39, and Powerball 19.
