DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas have matched all six numbers to win a Powerball jackpot that had been estimated at $500 million.

Lottery officials announced the jackpot winners Thursday morning on the Powerball website. Officials didn’t immediately confirm the final amount of the prize or which cities produced the winners.

If the jackpot stands at the $500 million estimated Wednesday, it would be the fifth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

No one had won the Powerball jackpot for more than two months, so the prize grew gradually from its $40 million starting point. That figure is now listed on the website as the current jackpot for the next drawing.

The winning numbers in Wednesday’s drawing were: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball 19.
