He told The Times final results would not be available until late Wednesday night.

The winning Powerball numbers announced Wednesday night were 17, 49, 54, 35 and 1, and the Powerball was 34, according to the Multi-State Lottery Assn.

The $400-million jackpot was the sixth-largest in U.S. lottery history, and the odds of winning it were about 1 in 175 million, officials said.
