Powerball jackpot of US$700 million has one winner in Massachusetts
Jackpot is the lottery’s second-largest jackpot ever, after a US$1.6 billion pool in January of 2016
The Powerball jackpot of US$700 million had one winner in Massachusetts.
The game jackpot, which had been growing since the June 10 drawing, was offering a US$700 million annuity or US$443.3 million in cash, according to a statement from the Pennsylvania Lottery on Wednesday.
The jackpot was the lottery game’s second-largest ever , behind only the US$1.6 billion pool in January of 2016, which was shared by three winning tickets, the statement said.
An additional around 9.4 million additional players won prizes that totaled more than US$135 million.
If the jackpot had rolled over, the prize annuity value would be advertised as US$1 billion, the statement said.
Instead, it was reset to US$40 million.
