New Jersey man Earl Livingston, 87, was walking to buy a ticket for this week's Mega Millions jackpot when he fell and broke his hip, WCAU-TV reports.

That means the drawing on Saturday Oct. 27 will be worth $750 million with a cash option of $428.6 million.

Kelley Brooks bought a Mega Millions victor after her husband Larry sent her a reminder text to pick up a ticket.

The drawing Saturday night will come four days after someone won a $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot, the second-largest prize. That was the largest prize won in the state. In Michigan, there were 140,897 winners. Players select five white numbers from (1 to 69) and one red ball (1 to 26).

A retired veteran, Raymond Heft of Madison, is the lucky victor of the $1 million Powerball drawing from Wednesday, Oct. 24.

In the four days leading up to the drawing, about 370 million of the $2 Mega Millions tickets were sold in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. Deadline is 7:08 p.m. that day.
