SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Powerball ticket sold in Sioux Falls is worth $40,000 in the latest drawing.

South Dakota lottery officials say the ticket matched 4 of 5 white ball numbers and the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing to win the game's $10,000 third prize. The ticket buyer also purchased a $1 option that quadrupled the prize.

Powerball is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning $40,000 are 1 in about 649,000.

The jackpot for Saturday's drawing sits at $317 million.
