The Mega Millions jackpot is still up for grabs, but someone has finally won the Powerball jackpot. Last night's drawing was worth an estimated 730-million dollars – and a single winning ticket was sold in Maryland.
While the big jackpot can be paid as an annuity which is shelled out over 30 years, most winners opt for cash prizes, which amounts $546-million in this case. And that total? It’s also before taxes – so the winner can expect the feds and their state to take a cut as well.
- Winning numbers for last night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22.
