But this lucky winner scored the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history, a little over 1.7 billion bucks. And that's after nearly three months of no winning numbers drawn. And the record - also California, over 2 billion last November. I got to reevaluate my number-picking system. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
