A ticket with all six numbers in Wednesday evening’s multi-state Powerball lottery was sold in Vermont and the player has the choice between receiving the $366.7 million jackpot in 30 graduated payments over 29 years or a lump sum payment of $208.4 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 8, 40, 49, 58, 63 and the Powerball number was 14.

The drawing was the 27th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Illinois and is worth $1 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The jackpot for Saturday’s drawing will be $20 million.
