Luck strikes on St. Patrick’s Day for $457 million Powerball winner
DES MOINES, Iowa — Someone had a very lucky Saint Patrick’s Day and scored the winning ticket in Saturday night’s massive $457 million Powerball drawing.
Powerball officials say a single winning ticket was sold in Pennsylvania that matches all of the winning numbers: 22-57-59-60-66 and Powerball 7. The jackpot from Saturday’s drawing is the eighth-largest ever for the Powerball game.
The specific location where the winning ticket was sold has not been announced.
Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The largest jackpot in Powerball history was $1.6 billion. Three winning tickets were sold in that Jan. 13, 2016, drawing.
Meanwhile, no one matched all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions, which is now up to $377 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
