The winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing were worth $758.7 million, and we have them. You may have too, actually, since the winning ticket was sold in Massachusetts! The winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot were 6-7-16-23-26 with a Powerball of 4. The winning numbers were drawn at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017.

The ticket, sold at a Watertown convenience store, is the second-largest lottery jackpot in the history of North America. It’s the largest solo winning ticket in American lottery history.

This Powerball jackpot has been building since June 10, when a $447.8 million jackpot was won on a ticket sold in California. There have been 20 Powerball drawings since then. The only prize that has surpassed Wednesday night’s winnings was the $1.568 billion jackpot in January 2016, split between three winning tickets sold in California, Florida and Tennessee.

Mega-Millionaire Lottery Winners: Where Are They Now?

As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, the Massachusetts State Lottery said Powerball sales per minute were at $10,880. Tickets could be purchased until 9:50 p.m. Wednesday. Powerball tickets can be purchased for $2. See below to find a list of where you can buy, in case Wednesday night wasn’t your lucky night.

So let’s say you hit the jackpot. Congratulations! But before you buy, say, the Red Sox, there are a few things you should know , courtesy of USAMega:

  • If you opt for the annuity option, you receive 30 average annual payouts of $23,333,333. But Uncle Sam takes an average of $5,833,333, and Massachusetts takes an average of $1,166,667. So you’re really getting an average of $16,333,333 per year – still enough to net $489,999,990. The first year’s payout would net $7,375,203, and payments would increase until a $30,357,337 payout in 30 years.
  • If you opt for the lump sum cash payout, as most do, then you’re being awarded $443,300,000. That’s before federal taxes take $110,825,000 and state taxes take another $22,165,000. Then your $700 million jackpot winning ends up being $310,310,000.

The winning numbers for the Saturday, Aug. 19 drawing were: 17, 19, 39, 43 and 68. The Red Power Ball number was 13. The Multiplier number was 04.
