Someone purchased Saturday's winning ticket at Thornton Gas and Food Mart on Harlem in Forest Park. That winner will receive $18.75 million. They have to split the total of $37.5 million jackpot with another winner from Kentucky. There is no word yet on who the winners are.

The winning numbers were 1, 8, 10, 19 and 20 with a Powerball number of 23 and a Power Play of 2.
