SPRINGFIELD, Illinois — Two tickets sold in Illinois are $1 million winners in the unprecedented $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot.
Numbers were drawn Wednesday night and Powerball officials say three overall winning tickets were purchased in California, Florida and Tennessee.
Powerball officials say there were 893,220 winners in Illinois ranging from $4 prizes to a pair of $1 million winners who matched five numbers but didn't have the Powerball. Those tickets were bought in suburban Chicago, one at a Citgo Food Mart in Glenview and the other at Newstand in Schaumburg's Woodfield Mall.
Illinois Lottery officials say the state also had six $100,000 winning tickets and 37 $50,000 winning tickets.
The winning numbers are 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10. The estimated jackpot amounts had risen since Nov. 4.
