A Powerball jackpot ticket worth $232 million was sold in the South Dakota town of Winner. State lottery officials say the owner has yet to come forward but they plan to hold a news conference Thursday morning in Pierre to offer details.

They say it's the ninth-largest Powerball jackpot ever.

Out of the millions of tickets sold for Wednesday night's drawing, only one matched all six winning numbers: five, six, twelve, 16 and 21. The Powerball was seven.

A dozen players came close to the big money by matching five numbers. They're worth at least $200,000 and were sold in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

Powerball is played in 30 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

You can see the next Powerball drawing, worth an estimated $20 million, on 6abc Saturday night, just before Action News at 11 p.m.
