Numbers drawn for $750 million Powerball, third-largest in game history

Google CEO Sundar

An elderly man's broken hip turned out to be his lucky break after he ended up winning the lottery. MA residents have the biggest taste for playing the odds, spending nearly $763 per year on lottery tickets, the study found.

"Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that unicorn feeling of, like, 'maybe it'll be me, '" CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger said.

Earl Livingston, 87, left home to buy a ticket for that historic $1.6 billion lottery jackpot.

Livingston will need a hip replacement, but he says he's thankful.

Livingston and his family were thrilled to hear the news and grateful that the hospital's staff made him feel like a part of the team, Kraemer said.

"And then the staff came into the room and they were saying congratulations and I was like, "Wow, he really did win".

"I didn't quite believe it, so we checked the ticket against the numbers in the local paper, and sure enough, they were all there!" "They didn't have to put money in for him, they didn't have to tell him he won, they're just honest good people and it's just a heartwarming story that there are nice people in this world".

However, none of those players also played the Power Play option which would have increased their winnings to $2 million.

Livingston is having surgery Thursday night.
