Did you buy a Powerball ticket between Sunday and Wednesday at the Acme at 907 Paoli Pike in West Chester?

If so, and you paid for the Power Play, you better check those numbers.

You may have won $1 million.

No one hit all the Powerball numbers drawn Wednesday night, but two tickets did have all but the Powerball, plus the Power Play multiplier option.

One was purchased in Montana, the other at the Acme.

With Power Play, matching all the white balls automatically means $1 million.

The matched numbers were 15, 26, 27, 42 and 58, while the Powerball was 37.

The Acme will get $5,000 for selling the winning ticket.

But you have to claim your prize by next Thursday, one year after the original drawing.

Still no $87 million winner. On Feb. 28, someone bought a ticket at Plymouth Meeting Mall that is worth $87.2 million - half of that night's Powerball jackpot.

The other half was claimed in Delaware.

The numbers were 3, 16, 20, 42 and 58, with a Powerball of 7.

Mega Millions marches on. The numbers drawn Tuesday night - 5, 17, 31, 36 and 56, with a Mega Ball of 46 - failed to match a single ticket, so tonight's annunity jackpot will be worth $36 million. The cash payout is $21.8 million.

California sold the only ticket worth $250,000 for having all of Tuesday's numbers except the Mega Ball.

Mega Millions is played in New Jersey, Maryland, New York and nine other states.
