    If you bought your Powerball ticket for last night's game in Connecticut, you are not one of the lucky winners to share $425 million. 

    However, you could be a millionaire. One $1 million ticket was sold in the state. It was in New London County, according to lottery officials.

    Two other people will also see their bank accounts grow because there were two $10,000 winners.

    Grab your tickets and check. The winning numbers are: 5-25-30-58-59 Powerball: 32.

    If you are the lucky winner, you must claim your prize within 180-days of the drawing date.  

    As you might already know, Powerball is a multi-state lottery and the winning tickets were sold in New Jersey and Minnesota.

    The next drawing will be on Saturday and the jackpot is $40 million.

    The odds of winning the jackpot are pretty slim -- just 1 in 175.2 million, according to the Powerball Web site.

    The largest Powerball jackpot to date is $590.5 million and the winning ticket was sold in Florida on May 18.

    There have also been five Powerball jackpot winners in Connecticut since 2003.
