NEW BERLIN, Wis. (AP) — A single ticket that matched all six Powerball numbers to win the estimated $768.4 million jackpot — the third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history — was sold in a Milwaukee suburb, Wisconsin Lottery officials said early Thursday.

The ticket, worth a cash option of $477 million, was sold in New Berlin, a city of about 40,000 people roughly 14 miles southwest of Milwaukee.

Lottery officials didn’t immediately identify the retailer that sold the ticket for Wednesday night’s drawing. The retailer will receive a $100,000 payout for selling the winning ticket.
