DES MOINES, IOWA (CBS/AP) -- One Powerball ticket has matched all six numbers in the latest drawing for the estimated $400 million jackpot.

The Multi-State Lottery Association says the winning numbers selected Wednesday night were purchased at a gas station in Lexington, S.C.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and Powerball 19.

The latest jackpot comes after a $448 million pot in early August was split among three tickets. In May, a Florida widow won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history -- a $590 million pot.

Paula Harper Bethea, Executive Director of the South Carolina Education Lottery, tells CBS Columbia, S.C. affiliate WLTX-TV the winner has the option of taking a cash payout of $223,256,476 or an annuity choice of close to $13 million per year for the next 29 years.
