Powerball is a lottery game played every Wednesday and Saturday in 44 states across the U.S., Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The large player pool allows Powerball to offer astronomical prizes in a short amount of time; in January 2016, the top prize reached an astonishing $1.58 billion, setting a new record for the world’s biggest lottery jackpot.

Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing could not take place in its usual Florida location as Hurricane Michael battered the southeastern state. The drawing had to be moved inland and could not be televised due to the upheaval.
A construction worker from Staten Island, New York, has come forward to claim a Powerball jackpot worth $245.6 million. 42-year-old Nandlall Mangal is the game’s seventh jackpot winner to come from The Empire State since 2010, but actually left his ticket unchecked for a full week before realising he was the lucky winner.
