LANSING, MI - The Powerball jackpot is now worth three quarters of $1 billion as there was no victor of the $602 million jackpot for the drawing held on Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Even as stock markets sank again, one person (or group) made a lot of money this past week: the yet-to-be-identified holder of the single ticket that won the Mega Millions lottery.

Check your tickets! The winning numbers for the Saturday, Oct. 27 Powerball drawing are 8, 12, 13, 19, 27 and Powerball 4.

The $750 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid annually over 29 years. A $750-million jackpot, the fourth largest in United States history and the second astronomical jackpot this week, will be at stake during the Powerball drawing on Saturday.

A woman sells a Powerball ticket in SC. That was the largest prize won in the state. The game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.


There were 36 second-tier winners, those who picked five winning numbers but did not match the Mega Ball.

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.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.

The drawing will be held at 11 p.m. EST.
