The ticket is worth $149.4 million if the winner selects the 30-year-annuity option, or $86 million if the cash option is chosen.

Anoka County is in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities. The other winning tickets were sold in New Jersey.

The $448.4 million jackpot is the third largest in Powerball history.

It is the 22nd time Minnesota has had a Powerball jackpot winner, according to Ed Van Petten, director of the Minnesota State Lottery.

"We're thrilled that a ticket sold in Minnesota won a share of this jackpot," he said.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

Winning ticket holders have a year to claim the prize.
