Winning Powerball ticket worth $447.8 million sold in Riverside County

A single winning Powerball ticket matching all six numbers has been sold in Sun City, Calif., and will claim an estimated $447.8 million jackpot.

The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night that will claim the 10th largest lottery prize in U.S. history are 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number is 3.

According to the California Lottery website, the winning ticket was sold at the Marietta Liquor and Deli on Bradley Road in Sun City, southeast of Riverside.

Officials say the retailer where the winning ticket was sold will receive a $1 million “retailer bonus.”

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.

The jackpot grew so large because no one had matched all the numbers since April 1.

The estimated prize is based on a winner choosing an annuity, which pays off over 29 years.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
