One Winner For The 758.7 Million Powerball Jackpot
It wasn't me and unless you're reading this in Massachusetts, it's probably not you either.
There was only one Jackpot winner in the Wednesday Powerball drawing meaning that someone took home 700 million dollars all by themselves. This was the Powerball's second highest jackpot in the game's history and is the single highest ticket winner ever. If the ticket holder decides to take the lump sum they will take home $480.5 million.
The winning ticket was sold at Handy Variety, located at 97 Common Street in Watertown, Massachusetts. The one year clock starts now for them to claim their prize.
There were other small prize winners in the game. According to the press release, "40 millionaires were made after 34 players matched five numbers and six ticket holders matched five numbers in addition to the Power Play."
There was a million dollar winner right here in WNY. The million dollar ticket was sold at a Kwick Fill station at the corner of Harlem and Cleveland in Cheektowaga.
The winning numbers were 6-7-16-23-26 with the Powerball of 4.
