Mega Millions: The rural town of 22072 that's the centre of attention

People wait in a long line to purchase lottery tickets outside the Blue Bird Liquor store in Hawthorne California

No tickets matched the six numbers drawn in the Powerball lottery on Wednesday, sending the jackpot to $750 million, the fourth largest in United States history and the second astronomical jackpot this week.

The Mega Millions drawing Tuesday resulted in the largest jackpot ever won on a single ticket, which was purchased in SC.

The October 24 winning numbers are 3-21-45-53-56 Powerball 22 Power Play 2.

Across the game's nine prize tiers, there were more than 15.7 million winning tickets in Tuesday's drawing.

Approximately 20 soccer fans in Rome have reportedly been injured in terrifying escalator malfunction caught on film. Fans of CSKA Moscow were in Rome to watch their team take on Roma in a Champions League match at Olympic Stadium.

A winning ticket for that drawing would be worth $428 million should the victor take a lump-sum payment - as most do. The jackpot is the largest in Mega Millions history.

It's the second ticket in a week sold by a Safeway in San Francisco to garner a prize, though Tuesday's prize is nearly half of the $1.9 million ticket claimed last week.

The lottery firm said Tuesday's draw saw 36 people win second prize, and 419 win the $10,000 third prize.

Before taxes, that comes out to about $428 million if you choose the lump sum payout.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. The rest of the numbers on the ticket are just one number off.

Wednesday night's $620 million Powerball jackpot looks sort of puny given all the attention lavished on the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in SC on Tuesday.
