$758M Powerball sold in Massachusetts; $1M ticket sold in Spring

HOUSTON -- Powerball Chair Charlie McIntyre says the $758.7 million jackpot claimed by a ticket sold in Massachusetts is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in U.S. history.

In a statement early Thursday, McIntyre also says six other tickets won $2 million apiece, and 34 more are worth $1 million.

One of those million dollar tickets was sold in Spring at the Easy Lane Food Mart at 603 Rayford. Another million dollar ticket was sold in Snyder, Texas.

The lucky numbers for the second largest lottery prize in U.S. history were 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number was 4.

The Massachusetts State Lottery first announced on Twitter that the winning ticket was sold at the Handy Variety convenience store in Watertown. But they later issued a correction that the big win happened in Chicopee, Mass.
