After purchasing just a single ticket, they managed to match all six numbers in the Wednesday night Powerball draw. I mean, how lucky can you get? As a result of strong ticket sales the jackpot soared to approximately $768.4 million when the draw took place. And all those millions went to ONE person.
The Winning Numbers
