Text size Aa Aa

A $758 million fortune will go to just one lucky buyer in Massachusetts, who drew the sole winning Powerball number in the second-richest in the game's history, the lottery's organizers said early Thursday.

The winning numbers — 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, with a Powerball of 4 — were drawn at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday, said the Multi-State Lottery Association, which oversees the game for the 33 states and three U.S. territories that participate. Almost 10 million more players won prizes totaling more than $135 million, it said.

Wednesday night's jackpot trails only a $1.6 billion prize that was divided among winners in three states in January 2016. The result means the next jackpot resets at "only" $40 million.
