All we know so far is that the ticket was sold in Wisconsin, the cash amount is $477 million and the winning numbers were 16, 20, 37, 44, 62 and the Powerball number 12.

"It's going to be a very green spring for our first Powerball jackpot winner of 2019," David Barden, Powerball Product Group chairman and New Mexico Lottery CEO, said in a statement.

"A jackpot of this size can make many dreams come true — not just for the winner, but for all Lottery beneficiaries and the lucky state of Wisconsin."

The winner beat the odds of one in 292.2 million for matching the five white balls and single Powerball.

Other winners from Wednesday's draw include seven ticket holders that matched all five white balls, but missed matching the red Powerball to win a $1 million prize. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, two in California, Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey and New York.

Two other tickets, sold in Kansas and Minnesota, matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million, because the tickets included the Power Play option for an additional $1.
