LANSING (AP/WWJ) - The Michigan Lottery says it has been contacted by the winner of last week’s $337 million Powerball jackpot.

In a news release issued Wednesday, the lottery says details about the ticket-holder won’t be released until the prize is officially claimed.

The winning ticket for the Aug. 15 drawing was sold at a Sunoco gas station on North Main Street in Lapeer.

It was the third-largest Powerball jackpot in the game’s history and the seventh largest jackpot in U.S. history. Lottery officials have said the winner could take home a $241 million lump sum.

Just three days after that ticket was sold, another Powerball ticket sold in Plymouth won $1 million in Saturday’s drawing.
