The Colorado Lottery says it’s the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in the state.
It says the winning ticket for Saturday night’s multistate drawing was purchased at a Kum & Go convenience store in the small eastern city of Rifle. The ticketholder has yet to come forward.
The winner matched the five winning numbers – 3, 12, 31, 34, 51 – and the Powerball, 24.
The Colorado Lottery says the $90 million jackpot amounts to an estimated $54.9 million cash payout. The store will get a $50,000 commission.
Another Colorado ticket also won $1 million in the drawing. It was purchased in Broomfield, and the winner hasn’t come forward yet.
Colorado previously has had one Powerball jackpot winner. The group SEEP Financial won the $20 million prize in October of 2007. At that time, the starting jackpot for Powerball was $15 million.
