Powerball 8/23/17 winning numbers, live lottery results for Wednesday’s $758M drawing

UPDATES:

The winning numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing were: 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26. Powerball is 4.

Ten weeks ago, the Powerball jackpot stood at $40 million. During Wednesday’s night drawing the jackpot was worth $758.7 million — the second-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The drawing was televised from Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee on WABC-7 in the New York City area and Fox 29 in the Philadelphia area.

The cash option is worth $443.4 million — the third highest cash value for a drawing. The cash value of the jackpot that previously held the No. 2 spot — a $656 Million Mega Millions drawing on March 30, 2012 — was $471 million.

The massive $1.58 billion prize won on January 13, 2016 was split by three winners from California, Florida and Tennessee.

Ticket holders in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois shared the $656 million prize in 2012.

Twenty drawings have been held since Californian Jeff Lindsay captured a $447.8 million jackpot on June 10. The jackpot reset to $40 million for the June 14 drawing and has been on the rise in the 10 weeks since.

On Saturday, 10 tickets sold across the country matched five numbers plus the Powerball and are worth at least $1 million. One was sold in New Jersey — four women who work as dog groomers in Ringwood split the prize.

The Powerball jackpot has been hit four times this year.

Powerball tickets cost $2 each. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win the second prize of at least $1 million.
