Winning ticket sold in Calif. for $448 million Powerball jackpot


The numbers drawn were: 20, 26, 32, 38, 58 and the Powerball number was 03, with 2x Powerplay.

That ticket, sold in Sun City, California, is worth $447.8 million - or a one-time cash payout of $279.1 million - making it the 10th largest jackpot ever in the United States.

No other winners in New Jersey have been announced, but the lottery said in a statement that 2,750,331 players won prizes totaling $21.1 million. Winners have up to 1 year to claim their prize.

The last Powerball drawing to produce a jackpot victor was on April 1, said California Lottery spokesman Mike Bond.

The mayor of the Southern California city where the winning Powerball ticket was sold says he hopes a local resident has won the jackpot.

The tiny liquor store that sold the only winning ticket for this weekend's massive $447.8 million Powerball jackpot has been identified - and it's going to score a $1 million "retailer bonus" of its own, California lottery officials announced Sunday. The victor has one year to claim the prize.

Alberre says he and his father own the store in Sun City. It was a switch that essentially traded lower odds for increased payouts, such as Saturday night's $448 million victor. Those figures are just the amounts withheld up front; your final tax burden is likely to be even higher.

The odds of winning Saturday's drawing were only one in 292.2 million, according to Powerball.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
