LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) — Officials with the South Carolina Education Lottery say a $400 million winning ticket in the latest Powerball drawing was sold at a service station just off I-20 west of Columbia.

Media gathered Thursday at a Murphy USA station in Lexington where the ticket was sold.

The winner wasn't at Thursday's gathering. Lottery Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea says winners do not have to come forward publicly.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 7-10-22-32-35, with the Powerball of 19.

The actual value is $399.4 million, with a direct cash option of $233 million.

It's the largest Powerball winning ticket sold in South Carolina and the fourth largest in Powerball history.

In May, a Florida widow won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history — a $590 million pot.
