PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — A single winning Powerball ticket matching all six numbers was sold in Massachusetts.

Powerball Product Group Chair Charlie McIntyre says the $758.7 million jackpot claimed by the ticket for Wednesday night’s drawing is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in U.S. history.

The Massachusetts State Lottery announced on Twitter that the winning ticket was sold at the Handy Variety convenience store in Chicopee.

The lucky numbers for the second largest lottery prize in U.S. history were 6, 7, 16, 23 and 26, and the Powerball number was 4.

In Pennsylvania, four players matched all five white balls, but failed to match the Powerball. Still, they’ll each receive $1 million. Another player also matched all five balls and purchased the Power Play option. That winning ticket is worth $2 million.  Pennsylvania Lottery officials have yet to announce where those winning tickets were sold.
