The second largest jackpot in Powerball history has a victor

Winning the lottery was a "pipe dream" come true, she said, but she hopes her life returns to normal. Wednesday's big prize is still dwarfed by a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot split between three winners in January 2016.

Then she read the number on her ticket and realized she had won.

Wanczyk said at a press conference that she picked numbers based of off her family members' birthdays.

Reporters asked if she had plans to treat herself to something nice, such as a fancy new vehicle.

Wancyzk said she called her employer "and told them I will not be coming back". The fact that only five went unclaimed means 98.7% collected their prize money.

The game is available in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin islands.

You can only get the big jackpot if you match all five white balls (in any order) and you match the red Powerball.

They originally said it was purchased by a Powerball player at the Handy Variety convenience store in Watertown near Boston.

"I think she has a good story", Sweeney said.

The second largest jackpot in Powerball history has a victor

The current jackpot refers to the annuity option, doled out in 30 payments over 29 years, increasing 5 percent annually. Two of those tickets were sold at stores in Durham and the rest at stores in Emerald Isle, Indian Trail, Gibsonville, Winston-Salem, Lumberton, Raleigh, and Haw River. "And I have that - I have that!'" she told reporters. "We apologize for the confusion this created and remain thrilled that a jackpot winning ticket and two $1 million winning tickets were sold here in MA".

The owner of the store that sold the lone winning Powerball ticket says he's donating the store's $50,000 prize to several local charities.

While she could have remained anonymous, she said she came forward so quickly because she wanted to "get it over", hoping that everybody would leave her alone.

Chances of picking all six winning numbers now stand at about one in 292 million.

He said the store in Watertown did sell a ticket that won a $1 million prize.

The lucky numbers from Wednesday night's drawing are 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number is 4.

It is our luck versus this person's who just scored a massive lottery prize money.

In addition, a $2 million victor was sold in Catawissa and another $200,000 victor was sold in Berwick.
