1 winning Powerball ticket sold in California worth $447 million

1 winning Powerball ticket sold in California worth $447 million”

Saturday's estimated $447.8-million jackpot, the seventh largest in Powerball history, beat out the $435.3 million won by a ticket buyer in IN in a February 22 drawing, after a late surge in ticket buying.

Marietta Liquor & Deli in Sun City, Calif., sold the lucky ticket containing all six winning numbers for the 10th largest prize in U.S. history.

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

The owner of the California deli that sold the sole jackpot winning Powerball ticket on Saturday calls the win "unbelievable". That prize was split among three winnners. The unnamed couple that bought the ticket chose to take the cash payout option of $74 million.

Matthew Alberre owns Marietta Liquor & Deli in southern California's Riverside County with his father, Alberre Alberre. Both amounts do not figure in a deduction for taxes.

This big score will come in handy for Alberee's family, after his was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis earlier this year. He says they were grateful to receive news that their store sold the ticket.

The 10th largest Powerball drawing was held Saturday night.

Alberre says the store just off a highway caters to retirees who live in Sun City and motorists who are passing through.

Forty-two workers claimed a $1 million Powerball prize Friday at Rhode Island lottery headquarters, a representative for the group told WJAR.

Menifee has about 89,000 residents.
