Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 2, 21, 45, 53 and 56 with a Powerball of 22.

The largest lotto drawing in US history remains a $1.59 billion Powerball from January 2016. That's because the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.

The drawing on Saturday is the fourth-largest lotto total ever. A victor who opted for cash would get $428.6 million.

If there's a victor, it would be one of largest jackpots in the nation's history.

No one has come forward to claim the Mega Millions prize.

Only days ago, the scramble to buy tickets was highlighting some basic aspects of human nature: Money isn't only about wealth, and people don't understand probability.

After selling a $1.5 billion winning lottery ticket, SC convenience store owner CJ Patel says he plans to share part of the business' $50,000 bonus with his employees.

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

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over since it was last won in August, the lottery said.

There were 36 second-tier winners, those who picked five winning numbers but did not match the Mega Ball.

They missed out on the $1.5 billion prize, but this group is more than happy with their million.
