Show Them The Money! Powerball Ticket Sold In Maryland Wins $731 Million Jackpot And we have a winner! Someone is waking up $731 million richer after a single Powerball ticket in Maryland matched all the numbers on Wednesday to win the jackpot. Lottery officials haven’t said yet what city or store sold the winning ticket. It’s the fourth-largest jackpot in the history of the game. In case you aren’t the winner, the Mega Millions jackpot sits at an estimated $970 million. The next drawing for that is Friday. Let’s dream big – forget a new house or vacation – what’s one outlandish/wild “toy” you would buy for yourself if you won the lottery?
