One ticket in California matches all six numbers in Monday’s $2.04 billion Powerball drawing.
The ticket has a cash value of $997.6 million. Grand Prize winners may choose to receive their prize as an annual bonus, payable in 30 graduated installments over 29 years, or all at once. Both award options are before federal and state taxes.
The ticket was sold at Joe’s Service Center at 15 West Woodbury Road in Altadena (Los Angeles County). The work is depicted in this article.
The ticket is the single biggest jackpot winner in American lottery history. The ticket matches the numbers 10-33-41-47-56 and Powerball number 10. Joe’s Service Center will receive a maximum reward of $1 million for selling a winning ticket.
Three more Californians won $1 million in the raffle, along with smaller winners elsewhere in the country. To win a million dollars, the ticket must match the five numbers and you lose the Powerball number.
California’s multi-million dollar winners came in the following locations:
• Stues Dairy located at 13126 South Western Avenue in Gardena (Los Angeles County)
• Oak Valley 76 located at 1815 Oak Valley Village Circle in Beaumont (Riverside County)
• 1001 Castro Street (grocery and liquor store) located at 1001 Castro Street in San Francisco
California schools will get $156.3 million from the record jackpot and all listings before that. This is the highest contribution to education resulting from a single rolling sequence in lottery history.
According to Powerball officials, Monday’s Powerball draw was postponed because another lottery participant – not California – needed additional time to complete required security protocols. Powerball has strict security requirements that all 48 lottery games must meet before the draw can be made.
The Powerball draw for the world record $2.04 billion was made at 5:57 a.m. PS At the Florida Lottery studio in Tallahassee.
Arsenal tickets are $2 per game. Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
The previous jackpot record was $1.586 billion for jackpot winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
The record Mega Millions jackpot was a $1.537 billion bet won by a single ticket in South Carolina in 2018.
