Powerball numbers drawn for $750M jackpot, 4th largest in USA history

LANSING, MI - The Powerball jackpot is now worth three quarters of $1 billion as there was no victor of the $602 million jackpot for the drawing held on Wednesday, Oct. 24.

The drawing Saturday night will come four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest prize.

Saturday's Powerball drawing would pay an estimated $750 million if a victor matches all six numbers. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket took home the jackpot in NY in August.

The prize was $50,000, but because the player also bought the Power Play option, the ticket is worth $100,000.

If there's a victor, it would be one of largest jackpots in the nation's history.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The next Lotto 47 drawing is Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7:29 p.m. with a jackpot of $1.2 million.
