Single winning Powerball ticket sold

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON, MA (AP) -  A single winning Powerball ticket matching all six numbers was sold in Chicopee, Massachusetts.

Here are the numbers drawn for Wednesday, August 23: 07, 26, 16, 23, 06 and the Powerball, 04. 

The jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing reached $758.7 million. The cash option is $443 million.

The jackpot is second only to a $1.6 billion prize won in January 2016.

The $700 million prize reflects the annuity option, paid over 29 years. A winner who wants cash would receive $443.3 million, minus federal and state taxes that generally eat up more than 30 percent of winnings.

Odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
