(Reuters) – A lucky ticket holder could be 768 million US dollars richer on Wednesday night after drawing the third-largest US Powerball jackpot in the history of the lottery, officials said.
The winners are 16, 20, 37, 44, 62 and Powerball 12.
The jackpot exceeded the $ 600 million mark for the fourth time in history last week for the price of a $ 2 ticket, officials said.
This week's draw nudged to third place when it topped $ 758 million Powerball in August 2017.
No winning tickets were announced immediately. The estimated one-time cash payout option is more than $ 465 million, the lottery said in a press release.
The next Powerball drawing was scheduled for Saturday, March 30th.
