One winner reported for 758.7 million #Powerball jackpot; largest single ticket win ever. On Wednesday, at 11:00pm the numbers were announced ( 06,07,16,23,26,04 ). It was said the winning Powerball ticket was sold in Watertown, Ma at Handy Variety as they were told they would receive $50,000 for selling the ticket but by Thursday morning that had changed due to a huge mix-up. The lottery officials had to correct themselves due to the real winning ticket being sold in Chicopee, Ma. So instead of Handy Variety receiving $50,000 for selling the winning numbers, they will receive $10,000 for selling a $1 million winning ticket. Something is better than nothing but I know the feeling of disappointment and I know the stress of mix-up and confusion. The winner hasn’t come forward yet to claim their prize of $758.7 million but lottery officials announced the ticket was purchased at Pride Station & Store in Chicopee, Ma. Hopefully, the ticket wasn’t thrown away due to the mix-up and the winner claims their prize because they are now 758.7 million dollars richer!
