Numbers drawn for $750 million Powerball, third-largest in game history

The temptation to spend big is proven by the research

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

It comes after one ticket sold in SC matched all six numbers on Tuesday in the United States' other main lottery, the Mega Millions, to win a jackpot of $1.537 billion, just short of a world record.

This is the fourth-largest American jackpot.

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

Saturday's potential jackpot is surely mind-blowing.

The ticketholder of the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot in Simpsonville, South Carolina, has still not been identified. Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.

The odds of winning the top prize might be slim but don't forget there are plenty of secondary prizes. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
