NEW BERLIN, Wis. — The winning $768 million Powerball ticket was sold at the Speedway on Beloit Road in New Berlin, according to Wisconsin Lottery officials.

A single ticket that matched all six Powerball numbers to win an estimated $768.4 million — the third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history — was sold in the 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.

Speedway will receive a $100,000 payout for selling the winning ticket.

The win comes almost two years after Wisconsin hit its last Powerball jackpot, when a Milwaukee resident won $156.2 million on March 22, 2017.

The winning numbers are 16, 20, 37, 44 and 62. The Powerball number is 12. Powerball lists the odds for winning the grand prize as 1 in 292,201,338.00.
