Wednesday night's $620 million Powerball jackpot looks sort of puny given all the attention lavished on the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in SC on Tuesday.

The overall Powerball jackpot has rolled to $750 million, the third-largest jackpot in Powerball game history and the fourth-largest in U.S. Lottery history.

Powerball has had 21 drawings in a row without a jackpot victor. Ticket sales in MA for that drawing totaled more than $32 million, officials said. Saturday's jackpot of $3.245 million is second only to the record $3.62 million jackpot won in July 2017.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily.

The next drawing will be Saturday.

The Mega Millions drawing Tuesday resulted in the largest jackpot ever won on a single ticket, which was purchased in SC.

But the South Carolina Education Lottery has a message for the person or group with the lucky ticket. If the Powerball jackpot is hit Saturday, it will be the fourth largest jackpot in US lottery history.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

This is the first time this year the Powerball jackpot has crossed the $700 million mark, officials said. The ticket, sold in northeast Kansas, has not yet been claimed.

More than 259,000 other Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball tickets won prizes of various amounts in the drawing, including more than 51,000 tickets purchased with the Power Play® option that won prizes multiplied by two. Friday's Mega Millions drawing will be at 11 p.m. Saturday's Powerball drawing will be at 10:59 p.m. Saturday's Megabucks Doubler drawing will be at 11:20 p.m., officials said.
