Two Winning Tickets Sold for $750 Million Powerball Jackpot
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-- Lottery officials say two tickets have won the estimated $750 million Powerball jackpot.
Powerball officials say tickets purchased in Iowa and New York match all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing. The jackpot is the fourth-largest in U.S. history.
The winning numbers were 8, 12, 13, 19 and 27, and Powerball 4.
Lottery officials say one ticket was sold at Casey's convenience store in
Redfield, Iowa, a rural community of about 800 people. The other winning ticket was
sold at West Harlem Deli in New York City.
It comes four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest lottery prize. The ticket was sold in South Carolina.
Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S Virgin Islands and
Puerto Rico. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
