Winning numbers drawn for $750 million Powerball jackpot

Adjust Comment Print

It's not immediately clear if there is a victor for the fourth-largest jackpot in US history.

The next Powerball drawing is Saturday, Oct. 27 and the estimated jackpot is $750 million, according to the Wisconsin Lottery release.

The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week.

No one has won the Powerball jackpot since August 11, when a man from Staten Island, New York, won $245.6 million.

New York Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 5th Ave.

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

This is the fourth-largest American jackpot. In Michigan, there were 140,897 winners.

The drawing will be held at 11 p.m. EST.

Those planning to spend $2 on a Powerball ticket can hope for a giant payday but should realize they have nearly no chance of winning the top prize.
