Drawing nears for $750 million Powerball jackpot

Drawing nears for $750 million Powerball jackpot

That means the drawing on Saturday Oct. 27 will be worth $750 million with a cash option of $428.6 million.

This comes four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest prize.

The winning numbers for the estimated $750 million Powerball game have been drawn. On Wednesday night, when it was at $620 million, the Powerball jackpot looked sort of puny given all the attention lavished on the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in SC on Tuesday.

New York Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 5th Ave.
