Powerball said on its website the single ticket matched all six
numbers in drawn on Wednesday night: 6, 7, 16, 23, 26 and the
Powerball of 4.
The winning ticket was sold at a Handy Variety convenience store
in Watertown, the Massachusetts State Lottery said on Twitter.
So far, no one has claimed the prize.
The winner will get annual payments over 29 years, totaling
$758.7 million, or a lump sum payment of more than $440 million,
The odds of a ticket having all six winning numbers are 292.2
million to 1, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.
Powerball tickets are sold in 44 U.S. states, and Washington,
D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
No one had won the Powerball's top prize in the twice-a-week
drawings since June 10, when a California man won a jackpot
valued at $447.8 million.
