The winning ticket was sold at Albertsons, located at 427 E. FM 1382, in Cedar Hill.

His or her ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (6-8-9-37-40), but not the red Powerball number (26).
Feel like playing now? Here’s a breakdown of how the game works from the Texas Lottery Commission.
- Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and roll until the jackpot is won.
- Players win the jackpot by matching five numbers from a field of 69 numbers and one Powerball number from a field of 26 numbers. By choosing the Power Play for $1 more per play, players can multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four, five or 10 times.
- A Power Play Match Five (5+0) is set at $2,000,000 regardless of the Power Play number selected.
- All other non-grand prizes will be multiplied by the Power Play number selected. The 10X Power Play multiplier is available for drawings in which the initially advertised annuitized Grand Prize amount is $150 million or less. Drawings occur each Wednesday and Saturday at 10:12 p.m. CT
