THREE RIVERS, Mich. -- If you live in Three Rivers, know someone who lives in Three Rivers, or randomly filled up at a gas station and bought a lottery ticket in Three Rivers, drop what you are doing and check your numbers:  Michigan Lottery officials say someone hit the $310.5 million Powerball jackpot on Wednesday night.

According to two workers at Aquatic, a baththub manufacturer, the winner is a Supervisor who was working the third shift early Wednesday morning when she learned her good fortune, and quickly left.  "I got back from my lunch break and everyone was crowding around her and I didn't know what was going on so I went over to ask and they told me that she had matched all the numbers up and she clocked out and she was going home," said Dylan Sheldon who also works at Aquatic.

The winning numbers in Wednesday's drawing were 21-39-40-55-59 with a Powerball of 17 and 3x Power Play.

The ticket worth $310.5 million was purchased at the Three Rivers West Shell gas station, located at 1223 W. Michigan Avenue.
