1 winning Powerball ticket sold in California worth $447 million

A person or family in Sun City has become nearly $448 million richer after buying a winning Powerball ticket, according to lottery officials.

The ticket had all six matching numbers that were drawn Saturday and it was purchased at Marietta Liquors at 27985 Bradley Road.

The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night were 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number was 3.

Miller said the estimated jackpot prize is based on a winner choosing an annuity, which pays off over 29 years. The cash prize would be $279.1 million. Both prize amounts would be before taxes are deducted.

Before the drawing Saturday night the jackpot was estimated at $435 million. The jackpot had grown because no one had matched all the numbers since April 1.

The odds of winning Saturday's drawing were only one in 292.2 million.

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