The Powerball numbers 3, 21, 45, 53, 56 and a Powerball of 22 were drawn on Wednesday night. A $750-million jackpot, the fourth largest in U.S. history and the second astronomical jackpot this week, will be at stake during the Powerball drawing on Saturday.

It could be the fourth largest in United States lottery history and the game's third largest jackpot. "We're also buying a lottery ticket'". A victor who opted for cash would get $428.6 million.

No one has come forward to claim the Mega Millions prize. It's not immediately clear if there is a victor for the fourth-largest jackpot in US history. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

The jaw-dropping jackpot failed to break the record for lottery winnings, held by the $1.586 billion Powerball prize in January 2016.

After he scored, Drummond sort of tossed out a little chicken wing and Embiid tumbled over backwards to draw the technical foul. Pistons: Thursday they host Cleveland, which will be on a back-to-back after playing host to Brooklyn on Wednesday.

The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright.

The Virginia Lottery said in a statement that the chances of matching the first five numbers in Mega Millions are 1 in 12,607,306.

The odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 302.5 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball. They ended up winning a million bucks. Tickets cost $2 each.
