Drawing nears for $750 million Powerball jackpot

Google CEO Sundar

The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week. That jackpot will be the fourth largest lottery jackpot in US history and could move into third place if ticket sales outpace expectations.

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

A $750-million jackpot, the fourth largest in United States history and the second astronomical jackpot this week, will be at stake during the Powerball drawing on Saturday.

New York Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 5th Ave. That's because the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.

The winning ticket was sold at the Holiday store at 2755 Brandt Drive.

New Jersey hospital workers who helped an elderly patient become a Mega Millions lottery victor told Inside Edition they wanted to do something special for him.

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

The drawing on Saturday is the fourth-largest lotto total ever.
