(Newser) – One lucky Michigander has just won permanent immunity from the state's economic woes. The $337 million Powerball jackpot, the second-largest in the lottery's history, was won by a Michigan resident with the numbers 6-27-46-51-56-21, ABC reports. The winning ticket was sold at a Sunoco gas station in Lapeer, a town east of Flint, and the winner has yet to come forward, a lottery spokesman says. Seven other winners in Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia who got 5 numbers won $1 million each and a winner in Nebraska who added the "Power Play" will get $2 million.
