Powerball numbers drawn for $750M jackpot, 4th largest in USA history

Rochas Okorocha

Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 2, 21, 45, 53 and 56 with a Powerball of 22. That jackpot will be the fourth largest lottery jackpot in USA history and could move into third place if ticket sales outpace expectations.

No one has won the Powerball jackpot since August 11, and the odds of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is 1 in 302.5 million.

The parent turned out to be one of 10 division one winning entries across Australia in a Lotto draw, taking home a cool $408,233.51.

The $750 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid annually over 29 years.

South Carolina Education Lottery Chief Operating Officer Tony Cooper says the lottery knows when and where the ticket was bought, but won't be sure who bought it until the victor contacts them. Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

Patel says he has no idea who bought the winning ticket for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.
