Sharon Sutton, left, and Noreen Mason left a liquor store in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Wednesday with their Powerball tickets.

Only one wicked lucky Powerball player — someone who bought their ticket in Massachusetts — will claim the $758.7 million jackpot.

But plenty of other people won smaller prizes. (So, make sure to check your ticket!)

In addition to the grand prize ticket sold at a store in Chicopee, 261,642 other tickets were sold in Massachusetts with at least some payout.

Two of those other tickets won $1 million prizes. Seven others nabbed a cool $50,000.

The rest of the winning tickets can be cashed in for as little as $4 up to $400.

Nationwide, nearly 9.4 million tickets sold for Wednesday night’s drawing won something, splitting a combined total of about $135 million in winnings (not counting the jackpot, of course).

Tickets cost $2 each, though players can spend an extra $1 to add on the “Power Play” feature which boosts their payout if they win prizes (except the jackpot).
