However that prize was shared by three ticket holders.

The chance of winning Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million to one. "They would all be set", Surritte said. The victor has not yet come forward.

The single winning ticket is a Powerball record. He says they transcribed it incorrectly.

The jackpot has been raised to $700 million this week from last week's price pool of $535 million since there were no winning tickets last week.

The all-time biggest Powerball jackpot in the USA was the incredible $1.6 billion split among three winners in January 2016. That ticket was sold in Lowell. It was largest grand prize won by a single Powerball ticket.

"The phone started ringing at 8 o'clock" Bolduc said. The store is part of a chain that operates in western MA and northern CT.

"If anyone's looking for anyone to blame, the buck stops here with me, the executive director". San Jose, Calif. resident Steve Tran had purchased multiple tickets at multiple stores on his route as a delivery driver and realized he had been to the winning store in the middle of the night.

August 23, 2017: The winning ticket was sold in Watertown, Massachusetts. The trustee will hold the legal title of the lottery property, while the beneficiary (the winner) holds the equitable title.

As of February 2016, a total of almost $57 million went unclaimed in MA lottery prize money, due to tickets expiring without the buyers ever claiming their wins.

Powerball Product Group Chair Charlie McIntyre said in a statement early Thursday that the $758.7 million jackpot is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in USA history.

Handy Variety in Watertown and Sandy's Variety in Dorchester both sold a ticket worth $1 million. A person in MA was said to have had the winning numbers. People say they received their water bill from the Pueblo West Metropolitan District and couldn't believe how much it was.
