Everyone watched in awe when Powerball started its rapid climb in the last few weeks, hoping they’ll be the person to claim a magnificent jackpot that only comes once in a lifetime. This dream came true for one ticket holder from Massachusetts who scooped a ground-breaking $759.000.000 windfall last night. This is not only the second-largest jackpot since this game’s inception, but also the most gigantic lottery prize that was ever collected by a single ticket holder.

The latest Powerball draw took place on Wednesday night when the fortunate Massachusetts resident correctly guessed the winning line consisting of the numbers 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26 and the Power Ball 4. Many ticket holders came very close to becoming jackpot winners, too, with Match 5 prizes worth $1.000.000 being won in 19 different states. Players who managed to match all the five main numbers, but added Power Play option to their tickets scooped $2.000.000 each – they are residents of Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The draw on August 23th produced the total of almost 9.400.000 winners who cumulatively netted almost $135.000.000.

Since the inception of Powerball, there had only been one instance when the jackpot was higher than this one. It happened back in January 2016 and it led to a $1.586.000.000 victory for three ticket holders from California, Florida and Tennessee. Lisa and John Robinson of Munford were the first ones to come forward and collect their $327.000.000 share. They were followed by David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith of Melbourne Beach and Marvin and Mae Acosta of Chino Hills, who claimed the prizes of the same value.
