(Reuters) – Are you a new millionaire?
The winning figures for the estimated $ 750 million Powerball jackpot, the fourth largest in the lottery story, were pulled Saturday night.
The numbers are 8, 12, 13, 19, 27 and Powerball of 04.
No winning tickets were reported immediately.
This is the second astronomical lottery competition this week, with $ 1,537 billion Mega Millions lottery taken on Tuesday with a winning ticket sold in South Carolina.
The winner or shared winners of the Mega Million $ 2 ticket have not yet been publicly disclosed. The price is just shy of the world record.
If someone wins Saturday’s Powerball, they will receive immediate cash payment of $ 428.6 million or the $ 750 million prize will be paid over 29 years according to the lottery.
Powerball lottery tickets are sold in 44 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
The odds to match all five numbers and Powerball are 1
in 292 million.
The States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and use the money to support public schools or to meet other needs.
