That's because one winning ticket was sold in Saturday's massive Powerball jackpot - and it was sold somewhere in the Keystone State.

Last August, Mavis Wanczyk, a MA woman, received the largest single-ticket jackpot winnings in history, also through Powerball, to the tune of $758.7 million.

It matched all white numbers - 22, 57, 59, 60, 66 - and the red Powerball 7. This is the eighth largest jackpot in the game's history.

It was a pretty safe idea considering No. 1 seeds were 135-0 all time against No. 16 seeds going into Friday's games. Little Caesars made a promise: if a 16-seed wins in the NCAA Tournament, it will give out free food.

Three other tickets matched all but the Powerball number.

The winning $456.7 million jackpot has an estimated cash value of $273.9 million, Powerball said. The ticket sold in Texas won an additional $1 million because the buyer spent an extra $1 to exercise the Power Play option. The other tickets are worth $1 million. Otherwise the victor can receive 30 graduate payments over 29 years in an annuity. Meanwhile, $377-million is up for grabs in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in more than 292 million. The top price was last won January 5.
