Three tickets share $150M Powerball jackpot

The Associated Press

        DES MOINES, Iowa — Holders of tickets sold in Kansas, Minnesota and Missouri will share Saturday's $150 million Powerball jackpot, lottery officials said.

        Saturday's winning numbers were 3-6-8-43-48, with the Powerball 1.

        Winners will have the option of collecting $50 million each over a period of 25 years, or taking about half the amount in one lump sum. They'll have 60 days to decide.

        No immediate claims to the jackpot were reported by officials.

        Powerball jackpots seldom reach as high as $150 million. Still, Saturday's drawing was well below the record Powerball jackpot of $295.7 million, reached in July 1998.

        The lottery is played in 20 states, inlcudsing Kentucky and Indiana, and the District of Columbia.
