THREE RIVERS, Mich. (AP) — The winning ticket to a $310.5 million Powerball jackpot was sold in a small town in southwestern Michigan.

The ticket in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing was sold at the Three Rivers West Shell gas station on W. Michigan Avenue in Three Rivers.

The numbers are 21, 39, 40, 55 and 59, and the Powerball is 17.

Michigan Lottery officials are urging the winner to step forward. The jackpot can be paid over 30 years or the winner can choose a lump sum of about $197 million before taxes.

Three Rivers is just minutes from the Indiana border, so the winner might be from out of state.

Liz Smith, who works at the gas station, says “it’s just crazy” to sell such a large winning ticket in a small town.
