Winning $90M Powerball ticket sold in Colorado

DENVER (AP) — Someone in Colorado is holding the winning Powerball ticket for a $90 million prize.

The Colorado Lottery says it’s the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in the state.

It says the winning ticket for Saturday night’s multistate drawing was purchased at a Kum & Go convenience store in the small western city of Rifle. The ticketholder has yet to come forward.

The winner matched the five winning numbers — 3, 12, 31, 34, 51 — and the Powerball, 24.

The Colorado Lottery says the $90 million jackpot amounts to an estimated $54.9 million cash payout. The store will get a $50,000 commission.

Another Colorado ticket also won $1 million in the drawing. It was purchased in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, and the winner hasn’t come forward yet.
