On Thursday morning, Powerball Product Group Chair Charlie McIntyre said the $758.7 million jackpot claimed by a ticket sold in Massachusetts is the largest grand prize won by a single lottery ticket in U.S. history.

In a statement early Thursday, McIntyre also said six other tickets won $2 million apiece, and 34 more are worth $1 million.

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.

The Massachusetts State Lottery announced on Twitter that the winning ticket was sold at the Handy Variety convenience store in Watertown, but later said it made a mistake. The winning ticket was actually sold 82 miles away in Chicopee, Mass., at the Pride Station and store. The owner of the station gets $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.

In Florida, there were three $1 million Powerball tickets sold.

24 tickets matched 4 winners and also had the Powerball.

The Florida winners are shown below along with the payouts as listed by the Florida Lottery.
