ALTADENA, Calif. – A local resident woke up as California’s newest billionaire after matching all the numbers on Monday’s Powerball drawing.
The winning ticket for the world record jackpot was sold at Joe’s Service Center on West Woodbury Road in the San Gabriel Valley community of Altadena, the California Lottery said.
Three other tickets sold in California matched five numbers in the drawing but missed the Powerball number. Those tickets — sold in Gardena, Beaumont and San Francisco — are each worth roughly $1.15 million. A total of 22 such tickets were sold nationally.
The winning numbers in Monday’s drawing for the multi-state Powerball lottery are 10, 33, 41, 47, 56, and Powerball number is 10. Lottery officials said the jackpot climbed beyond its earlier estimate of $1.9 billion to $2.04 billion.
The jackpot was by far the largest lottery prize ever won. It topped the previous record $1.586 billion prize won by three Powerball ticketholders in 2016.
The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
