  • Lucky numbers for $758.7M Powerball jackpot drawn

"When manually recording the names of the retailers that sold the jackpot winning ticket and the $1 million winning tickets, the information was transcribed incorrectly", Michael Sweeney, executive director of the Massachusetts State Lottery, said in a statement.

She stepped up quickly and addressed a news conference over the noon hour. She plans to pay off a new auto she purchased past year.

The previous evening, she recalled, she was leaving work with a firefighter and remarked, "It's never going to be me".

Nine other tickets matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball and won $50,000.

Massachusetts State Lottery had initially reported that the winning ticket was sold in Watertown, but says that was a mistake.

Now, Wanczyk said that she just wants to "be alone and just be able to be me". A $1 million winning ticket sold in at the Pit Stop on Dutch Lake Drive in Howard Lake.

CT Lottery officials said someone in Connecticut won $1 million and another person won $2 million.

Boston police say 27 arrests were made during the conservative activist rally and counterdemonstration on Boston Common. President Donald Trump applauded the people in Boston who he said were "speaking out" against bigotry and hate.

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. The winning numbers for the jackpot drawn Wednesday night were 6, 7, 16, 23, 26, and the final number, called the Powerball, was 4.

Bolduc told reporters that the convenience store will receive a bonus for selling the winning ticket and plans to donate it to local charities throughout western MA.

One of its stores, in Chicopee, Massachusetts, sold the only ticket that won the $758.7 million jackpot.

In Wednesday's drawing, Kansas players won more than $370,000 in prizes with a total of almost 66,000 winning tickets, including more than 3,100 tickets with Power Play which quadrupled the players' prizes.

Handy Variety, located at 95 Common St., did sell a $1 million prize winning ticket, as did Sandy's Variety, 378 Washington St. Dorchester.

The only prize that's ever topped the $1 billion mark was claimed in January 2016 - a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot that grew over several months and was split three ways.

In addition, a $2 million victor was sold in Catawissa and another $200,000 victor was sold in Berwick. The game calculates the chance of winning at one in 292,201,338.00.
