It's not immediately clear if there is a victor for the fourth-largest jackpot in USA history.

Lottery officials say two tickets have won the estimated $750 million Powerball jackpot.

That means the drawing on Saturday Oct. 27 will be worth $750 million with a cash option of $428.6 million.




The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

The winning ticket was sold at the Holiday store at 2755 Brandt Drive. The second-largest ever is this past week's Mega Millions and the third-largest is a $758 million Powerball from August 2017. A victor who opted for cash would get $428.6 million. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million. In Michigan, there were 140,897 winners. The drawing is at 7:29 p.m. Deadline is 7:08 p.m. The game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
