One winner was announced for the $758.7 Million jackpot.

A big mistake was made in the announcement. It was originally reported that the winning ticket was bought in Watertown, Massachusettes at the Handy Variety Store. This morning the Massachusetts State Lottery sent a correction that it was actually sold at the Pride Station and Store in Chicopee, Mass.


A $1 Million ticket was sold at the Handy Variety Store.

It is still correct that there was one overall winner of the full jackpot.
