Drawing Nears for $750 Million Powerball Jackpot

Powerball

The winning numbers were 3, 21, 45, 53, 56, and the Powerball was 22.

No tickets matched the six numbers drawn in the Powerball lottery on Wednesday, sending the jackpot to $750 million, the fourth largest in USA history and the second astronomical jackpot this week.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball is 1 in 292 million.

An elderly man's broken hip turned out to be his lucky break after he ended up winning the lottery.

New Jersey hospital workers who helped an elderly patient become a Mega Millions lottery victor told Inside Edition they wanted to do something special for him.

No one has come forward to claim the Mega Millions prize.

The lucky victor or winners hit a jackpot worth $1.54 billion in estimated annuity value (or $878 million in cash).

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

Patel says he has no idea who bought the winning ticket for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.

Before the Mega Millions drawing, lottery officials had been reporting an expected $1.6 billion jackpot, based on estimates tied to historical patterns, lottery spokeswoman Carole Bober Gentry said on Wednesday.
