POWERBALL: Numbers drawn for $700M jackpot

24 August 2017

Prizes totaled almost $150 million, according to Kansas Lottery officials.

The numbers for Wednesday night's $758 million Powerball jackpot - the second-largest in United States history - were drawn.

Seven of the 12 largest Powerball jackpots have come since the odds were increased.

What comes as a shock to most is if you do win the Powerball, experts say you won't be receiving $700 million.

Those who want a shot at taking home a piece of the massive sum, no matter how unlikely, will need to purchase a ticket soon.

The overall chance of winning any prize is 1 in 24.87. Piedmont BP said they sell about 5,000 tickets each week.

"I come in here to play the Powerball, which I think I'll be the victor tonight", said Richard Sackett of Greensburg, who liked his odds of winning the second-largest Powerball jackpot in history.

The only prize that's ever topped the $1 billion mark was claimed in 2016. But more numbers have reduced the odds of winning the top prize to 1 in 292 million, from 1 in 175 million.

The jackpot is listed as $700 million, but that refers to the annuity option, doled out in 30 payments over 29 years.

Regardless of which way the victor elects to take their winnings, the federal government and the Commonwealth of MA will be getting a significant chunk of cash.
