1 winning Powerball ticket sold in California worth $447M

A person who has yet to be identified will likely be pocketing the tenth-largest lottery prize in US history, after lottery officials confirmed a winning Powerball ticket worth $448 million was sold in California Saturday night.

The victor beat odds of one in 292.2 million, lottery officials said.

Forty-two workers claimed a $1 million Powerball prize Friday at Rhode Island lottery headquarters, a representative for the group told WJAR. The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night were 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number was 3.

The victor has not come forward yet.

The biggest jackpot ever to be up for grabs was £66million in January a year ago, which was won by two lucky ticket holders.

California lottery officials say the sole winning ticket for the $447.8 million Powerball jackpot was sold in Sun City. The last time anyone won the jackpot was April 1.

The owner of a Southern California liquor store says he feels blessed for selling the winning Powerball ticket.

The jackpot figures are based on the victor choosing to take an annuity that pays out each year for 29 years.

Saturday's jackpot is the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball history, according to California Lottery.

This year started out tough for Alberre and his father because the father is suffering from pulmonary fibrosis lung disease.

Menifee has about 89,000 residents. It was a switch that essentially traded lower odds for increased payouts, such as Saturday night's $448 million victor. The other option of a lump-sum payout would reduce the cash prize to $279 million. Those figures are just the amounts withheld up front; your final tax burden is likely to be even higher.
