The winning numbers drawn Monday night were 05, 11, 22, 23, 69 and the Powerball 07. KOMO-TV reports the ticket was sold in Auburn, Washington, about 30 miles south of Seattle. Washington's Lottery officials were expected to release further information later Tuesday, including details of the outlet that sold the ticket. The full jackpot is for a winner opting for an annuity distributed in one immediate but partial payout followed by additional payments over 29 years that increase by 5% annually. The winner also can opt for a one-time cash payment of $407 million. Powerball says both prizes are the amounts before taxes. The jackpot was the ninth-largest in U.S. history.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory. $754M Powerball ticket sold in Seattle suburb
