1 winning ticket sold for $758.7M Powerball jackpot

by Associated Press

BOSTON — A single winning ticket has been sold for the massive Powerball $758.7 million jackpot in Wednesday night’s drawing. The winning ticket was sold in Chicopee, Massachusetts.

The lucky numbers from Wednesday night’s drawing are 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number is 4. The Massachusetts State Lottery announced Thursday morning that the winning ticket was sold at the Pride Station & Store location in Chicopee, Massachusetts, correcting an earlier announcement that it was sold at a different store in Watertown.

The $758.7 million jackpot is second only to a $1.6 billion prize shared by three people in January 2016. The current jackpot
refers to the annuity option, doled out in 30 payments over 29 years, increasing 5 percent annually.

Powerball Product Group Chair Charlie McIntyre said in a statement early Thursday that the $758.7 million jackpot is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in U.S. history.
