Winning Powerball Ticket Worth $447.8 Million Sold In Riverside County

16 June 2017

A Powerball player in California will take home the entire $447.8 million jackpot after matching all six numbers on their ticket in Saturday's drawing, lottery officials said.

The retailer that sold the winning ticket in Southern California, Marietta Liquor & Deli, will receive a $1 million bonus.

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

The winning numbers were 20, 26, 32, 38 and 58.

Davis stays on as UK Brexit Secretary
Mr Rifkind also turned on the Prime Minister during his tirade as he mocked her for not winning a majority in the election. Instead of accepting defeat, however, May claims that she will continue to push for Brexit negotiations.

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

It costs $2 for a Powerball ticket and a chance to dream of instant riches, but the odds of winning are incredibly small, at one in 292.2 million. That prize was split among three winnners.

The jackpot is the tenth biggest in US history and has odds of winning that are one in 292 million. Store owner Matthew Alberre said he does not know which of his customers won the jackpot.

"California is one of just three states that exempt lottery winnings from state income taxes-so long as the victor is a state resident who bought the ticket in California", noted Sean Cockerham of the Sacramento Bee in a 2016 report.

Special counsel 'now looking at possible obstruction of justice' by President Trump
She wondered why Sessions fired Comey when the AG had already recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates.

The lump sum payout for the winning ticket would be $279.1 million.

This year started out tough for Alberre and his father because the father is suffering from pulmonary fibrosis lung disease. Both prize amounts would be before taxes are deducted.

The ticket was sold at a liquor store in Pawtucket.

Menifee Mayor Neil Winter said he hoped a local resident bought the winning ticket at the store in a heavily visited intersection that has sold winners before but never for so much.
