Corrections & Clarifications: An earlier version misspelled the last name of the Hoosier Lottery spokesman. It is Rosebrough.

LOUISVILLE — The winning ticket for Wednesday's Powerball drawing, which was worth an estimated $435 million, was sold at a gas station in Lafayette, Ind., a Hoosier Lottery spokesman said early Thursday morning.

Dennis Rosebrough, director of public relations for Hoosier Lottery, said he couldn't release many details but confirmed that the ticket was sold in the Central Indiana city, located about 175 miles north of Louisville and about 62 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

He said it's most likely the second-biggest winning ticket ever sold in the state — a $540 million Mega Millions ticket was sold in Cambridge City in July.

"It's not quite at that level," said Rosebrough.

Powerball confirmed on its website that the Indiana ticket was the only winner from Wednesday night's drawing. The winning numbers were 10-13-28-52-61 and Powerball 2.

This is the first time the jackpot has climbed above $400 million in nearly three months.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 24.9, but the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

The jackpot drops back to $40 million for the drawing Saturday night.
