No Powerball Winner, Jackpot Now $750 Million

A tiny store in SC, is now considered the luckiest spot in America after it sold the winning $1.6 billion Mega Millions lotto ticket. It matched the first five numbers drawn Tuesday night but missed on the Mega Ball number.

Both Powerball and Mega Millions made winning more hard in recent years, which means it takes longer to reach the jackpot so it grows larger.

Wednesday's winning numbers were 03-21-45-53-56 and the Powerball was 22.

Saturday's jackpot is now up to $750 million.

The Super Kansas Cash jackpot for tonight's drawing is the second largest ever at $3.19 million.

Sales in Massachusetts for Wednesday's Powerball drawing, when the jackpot was about $620 million, totaled about $7.1 million, significantly less than the total sales for Tuesday's near-record Mega Millions drawing, which totaled almost $21 million in Massachusetts, Teja said. Most people can't even begin to comprehend that amount of money, but someone, somewhere, holds the sole MegaMillions lottery ticket worth that jackpot.

A single ticket sold in SC matched all numbers in the historic drawing to make the lucky holder of the ticket rich beyond belief. Sales reached almost $740 million during that time, lottery officials said. The cash option is now $428.6 million.

A yet to come forward local in SC could be more than one billion dollars richer after purchasing a winning ticket in this week's Mega Millions jackpot.

So grab those tickets: These are the winning numbers for the $602.5 million Powerball jackpot for Wednesday, Oct. 24 - the third largest in the game's history - which were announced at 8 p.m.

He told the staff "he was on his way to buy a lottery ticket and he was disappointed that he didn't get it", the man's niece, Bobbie Mickle, said, WCAU-TV reports. "Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment!" The state is set to receive about $70 million stemming from the win.

That person beat the odds of 1 in 302,575,350 to win.
