The winning numbers drawn Wednesday evening were 7, 21, 43, 44, 49 and 29.

Powerball officials said the winning ticket was sold somewhere in Oregon. They had no other information.

Forty-seven tickets sold matched the first five numbers drawn but failed to match the Powerball. They win $200,000 each, plus a bonus of $653,492. The odds of hitting all six numbers were 1 in 146 million.
