The Powerball jackpot for the Saturday, Oct. 27, drawing is $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.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball is 1 in 292 million. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin. The second-largest ever is this past week's Mega Millions and the third-largest is a $758 million Powerball from August 2017. In Michigan, there were 140,897 winners. Deadline is 7:08 p.m. that day.
