2 winning tickets sold for $750 million Powerball jackpot



Lottery players will have a shot at the fourth-largest jackpot in USA history as numbers are drawn for the estimated $750 million Powerball game. That jackpot will be the fourth largest lottery jackpot in USA history and could move into third place if ticket sales outpace expectations.

Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket took home the jackpot in NY in August. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

The prize was $50,000, but because the player also bought the Power Play option, the ticket is worth $100,000. The jackpot was won by a single ticket in SC. The second-largest ever is this past week's Mega Millions and the third-largest is a $758 million Powerball from August 2017.

Last week, the Turkish government denied giving "any kind of audio tape" from the investigation to any United States official. Meanwhile, the Turkish President has not confirmed if a recording of Khashoggi's murder and alleged torture exists.

A retired veteran, Raymond Heft of Madison, is the lucky victor of the $1 million Powerball drawing from Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Deadline is 7:08 p.m. that day. The ticket matched four white balls and the Powerball.
