PLATTE WOODS, Mo. (AP)- The Missouri Lottery says a Powerball ticket worth $71.5 million was sold at a Kansas City-area convenience store.

Lottery officials said Friday a ticket sold at the Autobahn BP store in Platte Woods matched all six numbers drawn Christmas night. The store will get a $50,000 bonus for selling the prize. And the winner can either collect the full jackpot in 30 annuity payments, or take the one-lump payment of $39.8 million before taxes.

Lottery spokeswoman Susan Goedde says the winner will be announced in the next few days through a news release or news conference.

The winning numbers are 23, 28, 38, 39, 56 and the Powerball number is 32.
