Two winners have claimed the third largest Powerball jackpot in the history of the game. Two lucky ticket holders in Iowa and New York have claimed the big prize.

Winning price for $ 687.8 million was 8-12-13-19-27 and a Powerball of 4.

Cash payout is $ 396.2 million and each winner takes home $ 198.1 million in the split jackpot.

The winning ticket in New York was sold on a deli in West Harlem, Manhattan. Iowa plans to announce where the winning ticket was sold later on Sunday morning.

There were also 2 million winners in Texas and Florida to match the five white balls with the extra Power Play and at least nine $ 1 million winners to match all five white balls.

Saturday’s total was adjusted slightly from an estimated total of $ 750 million earlier this week.

The drawing comes on the heels of an almost record $ 1.5 billion Mega Million drawing earlier this week. The jackpot won with a single ticket in South Carolina.

The largest draw in US history remains a $ 1.59 billion Powerball from January 2016. The second largest ever is this week’s Mega Millions and the third largest is $ 758 million Powerball from August 2017.

The sign on Saturday is the fourth largest lotto sum ever.
