We have a winner! Make that two!

Two players in Iowa and New York will split Saturday’s $687.8 million Powerball jackpot, the fourth largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

Each ticket is worth $343.9 million, or $198.1 million as a one-time cash payout.

The winning numbers were 8, 12, 13, 19, 27, with a Powerball of 4.

The jackpot was adjusted from an estimated $750 million based on actual drawing sales.

The largest Powerball jackpot ever was $1.586 billion, split three ways in January 2016.

Before Saturday’s drawing, 21 drawings had no winner, according to lottery officials. The last winning ticket was sold in New York last August.

Lottery officials added that two tickets in Florida and Texas won $2 million in Saturday’s drawing, and 13 other tickets sold in nine states won $1 million apiece.
