PHOENIX – Hang on to that lottery ticket: Someone has the rights to the biggest single-ticket jackpot ever sold in Arizona.

A Powerball player won $473 million in Wednesday’s drawing on a ticket sold at a QuikTrip convenience store in Gilbert near Gilbert and Warner roads, the Arizona Lottery said in an email.

The winning numbers for the draw were 11, 36, 61, 62 and 68 with Powerball number 4.

Cash value is $283.3 million, the Arizona Lottery said in a press release.

“We are excited to celebrate this huge $473.1 million Powerball jackpot win for one very lucky Arizonan,” Gregg Edgar, Arizona Lottery executive director, said.

“This is the biggest ever jackpot won on a single ticket in our state, and it is a life-changing moment for this winner.”

The prize must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing.

The winner can remain permanently anonymous, as can anyone who claims prizes of $100,000 or more, but their city and county can be made public.
