Numbers drawn for $700M Powerball, one winning ticket sold in MA

LAS VEGAS - The numbers have been drawn for the second largest lottery prize in U.S. history with lottery officials saying a single winning ticket was sold in Massachusetts claiming the $758.7 million jackpot.

Though the odds are slim, they're not entirely impossible. The last time a winner came out of the lotto store at Primm, the lucky winner walked away with $188 million dollars back in January.

The winning numbers are 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number is 4. Before Wednesday night's drawing the jackpot was estimated at $700 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
