Retired veteran claims $1 million Powerball ticket in Madison

The temptation to spend big is proven by the research

The winning numbers were 3, 21, 45, 53, 56, and the Powerball was 22.

Saturday's Powerball drawing would pay an estimated $750 million if a victor matches all six numbers.

Procopsis' win comes after the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot was claimed earlier this week in SC.

New Jersey man Earl Livingston, 87, was walking to buy a ticket for this week's Mega Millions jackpot when he fell and broke his hip, WCAU-TV reports. The ticket matched four white balls and the Powerball.

The parent turned out to be one of 10 division one winning entries across Australia in a Lotto draw, taking home a cool $408,233.51. A victor who opted for cash would get $428.6 million.

The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright.

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

However, none of those players also played the Power Play option which would have increased their winnings to $2 million.

The odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 302.5 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball.

In the four days leading up to the drawing, about 370 million of the $2 Mega Millions tickets were sold in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and use the money to support public schools or to meet other needs.
