$336.4M Powerball winner to be revealed in RI

The winner of last month's $336.4 million Powerball jackpot is coming forward in Rhode Island.

Lottery officials say a news conference will be held Tuesday morning to announce the winner.

The winning numbers from the Feb. 11 drawing were 1-10-37-52-57 and the Powerball was 11. The winning ticket was sold at a Stop & Shop supermarket in Newport.

The jackpot is the sixth largest in U.S. history. The lump sum payment will be $210 million.

The ticket price for Powerball increased from $1 to $2 in January. Rising sales nearly doubled the jackpot from $173.5 million on Feb. 1.

Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is about 1 in 175 million.
