Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers were 2, 21, 45, 53 and 56 with a Powerball of 22. The jackpot was downcasted slightly to $687.8 million, down from the Powerball's earlier estimate of $750 million.

Earl Livingston, 87, left home to buy a ticket for the historic $1.6 billion jackpot but on his way to the store, he slipped and fell.

An elderly man's broken hip turned out to be his lucky break after he ended up winning the lottery.

South Carolina Education Lottery Chief Operating Officer Tony Cooper says the lottery knows when and where the ticket was bought, but won't be sure who bought it until the victor contacts them.

No one has come forward to claim the Mega Millions prize.

If there's a victor, it would be one of largest jackpots in the nation's history.

Procopsis' win comes after the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot was claimed earlier this week in SC.

The next Lotto 47 drawing is Saturday, Oct. 27, at 7:29 p.m. with a jackpot of $1.2 million. Most were rewarded with a $1 million prize, but two of them, in Florida and Texas, added a Megaplier option, tripling their winnings to $3 million. His ticket did not match the Mega Ball, but did match all five of the white ball numbers.

States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and use the money to support public schools or to meet other needs.
