A ticket with all six numbers in Wednesday evening’s multi-state Powerball lottery was sold in Pennsylvania and the player has the choice between receiving the $206.9 million jackpot in 30 graduated payments over 29 years or a lump sum payment of $122.36 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 9, 21, 56, 57, 66 and the Powerball number was 11.

The drawing was the 15th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

There were no tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.
