The winning numbers for the $687.8 million prize are 8-12-13-19-27 and a Powerball of 4.

The drawing Saturday night will come four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest prize.

Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket took home the jackpot in NY in August.

The $750 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid annually over 29 years. Those tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Wisconsin. The jackpot was won by a single ticket in SC.

This is the fourth-largest American jackpot.

New Jersey hospital workers who helped an elderly patient become a Mega Millions lottery victor told Inside Edition they wanted to do something special for him. In Michigan, there were 140,897 winners. The game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Players select five white numbers from (1 to 69) and one red ball (1 to 26).

Thursday's Fantasy 5 jackpot is an estimated $105,000.

The drawing will be held at 11 p.m. EST.

The third-largest Powerball drawing is in the books, so check your tickets.
