From The Texas Lottery Commission:

Two of the four prizes of $1 million or more from Wednesday's Powerball® drawing have been claimed. Peters Eledu of San Antonio and Freddie Walls of Mount Pleasant each claimed $1 million second-tier prizes today. Texas Lottery® officials are still waiting for two other tickets, sold in Arlington and Amarillo, to be claimed.

Powerball players win second-tier prizes of $1 million by matching five of the numbers drawn but not the red Powerball. By adding the Power Play® feature for $1 at the time of purchase, players double their second-prize win to $2 million.

Walls bought his ticket at the South-End Grocery at 1101 South Jefferson Avenue in Mount Pleasant.

The final amount for Wednesday's advertised $425 million jackpot was $448.4 million. Two jackpot winning tickets were sold in New Jersey and one jackpot winning ticket was sold in Minnesota. The winning numbers drawn were 58-05-25-59-30,  PB 32.
