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

Powerball Powerball
Scott Davis | 28 October, 2018, 07:03

After the drawing, lottery officials rolled back the jackpot total to $1.537 billion, based on actual ticket sales. A hospital worker heard the news and invited him to join an employee pool. Until now, the biggest victor had been a $250,000 ticket about a year ago.

Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket took home the jackpot in NY in August.

Livingston was disappointed that he wasn't able to get the lotto ticket due to what had happened.

"I still feel the same way", she said.

"I didn't quite believe it, so we checked the ticket against the numbers in the local paper, and sure enough, they were all there!"




Unfortunately, the break means he'll need a hip replacement.

"So they said, 'Why don't you go in with us?"

Nurse Steve Grill is among the winners who's also helping take care of Livingston. But he had a message of thanks: "I want to thank everybody", Livingston said. "It's awesome because a lot of people could use the money - holidays coming up - it's good to help other people".

A broken hip turns into a lucky break for a New Jersey man. "I'm still going to be the same person".

The winning ticket - that cost just $2 - matched five numbers but not the Powerball. Most were rewarded with a $1 million prize, but two of them, in Florida and Texas, added a Megaplier option, tripling their winnings to $3 million.
