MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Nobody in Wisconsin matched all the winning numbers to win the big Powerball jackpot worth $564 million.

But $1 million isn’t a bad consolation prize.

The Wisconsin Lottery says someone who bought a ticket at Durand Avenue Mart in Racine matched five numbers, but not the Powerball to win $1 million in Wednesday night’s drawing.

Tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas matched all the winning numbers and will split the huge jackpot. Wednesday’s jackpot was the third-largest in Powerball history.

While the $1 million winner in Wisconsin did not immediately step forward, the Wisconsin Lottery announced Thursday that Glenn Lyon of Delavan won a $1 million prize in the Jan. 17 Powerball drawing.

Lyon bought his winning ticket at Uncle Bucks in Delavan.
