A $758.7 million dream has been dashed for many a lottery player. One ticket was sold in Watertown, Mass., for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.
It is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in U.S. history, according to a statement issued early Thursday from Powerball Product Group Chair Charlie McIntyre.
The jackpot is also the second-largest lottery prize in the U.S. In January 2016, the record jackpot was $1.6 billion but it was split three ways.
