PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Check your tickets! One lucky Powerball player in Pennsylvania has won the $206.9 million jackpot.

The winning ticket matched all six numbers in Wednesday's drawing.

The winning numbers were white balls 9, 21, 56, 57, and 66. The Powerball number was 11.

Powerball officials said the winning ticket was sold in Westmoreland County, near Pittsburgh.

The winner will have the choice between an estimated annuity of $206.9 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $122.3 million. Both prize options are prior to taxes.

This was the fifth Powerball jackpot won this year.

The Powerball jackpot was previously won in Vermont in the June 29 drawing when a single ticket won a grand prize worth $366.7 million.

Just last week, a Mega Millions ticket sold in Illinois won the $1.28 billion jackpot. A $1 million winning ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven in Montgomery County.
