$1.08 billion jackpot Powerball

The $1.08 billion jackpot, one of the largest in the game's history, has not yet been claimed by the owner or owners of the winning ticket from Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, which was purchased in a Los Angeles convenience store.

The Powerball number was 24, and the winning numbers were 7, 13, 10, 24, and 11.

A lump-sum payment of $558.1 million or an annuitized reward of $1.08 billion spread over 29 years, both before taxes, will be available to the fortunate ticket holder, according to Powerball.

According to the lottery, Wednesday's award is the third-largest Powerball jackpot and the sixth-largest US lottery jackpot ever, trailing only the world record $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot won in California last year and the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won in 2016.

According to the California Lottery, the winning ticket from Wednesday was purchased at Las Palmitas Mini Market in downtown Los Angeles. For selling the winning ticket, the convenience store will get nearly $1 million.

Angélica Menjvar, whose mother runs the business, told reporters that while they were pleased with the bonus, they did not yet have any ideas for how they would use it.

When Nabor Herrera, a store employee, arrived at work on Thursday morning with media flanking his car, he found out that the mart had sold the winning ticket.

He said, "I didn't know, I'm finding out now that I'm being surrounded. "They wouldn't let me park,"

He claimed that three of his clients purchased a sizable portion of the tickets, and he hoped that the winner is one of his many loyal clients. He had bought two tickets for himself, and he was eager to examine them.

He said, "Blessed, thank God someone won. Also, "We get a little bit."

Although Herrera was first listed as the owner, a lottery spokesman later revealed to CNN that he was actually a worker.

Powerball jackpot winners in California have a year to claim their winnings. After their claim has been approved, they have 60 days to select the payout they desire.

Despite the fact that the jackpot was only won by one ticket, players are encouraged to check their tickets in case they also won one of the seven additional prizes, which ranged in value from $4 to $2 million (depending on state lottery regulations).

The state's public school system was another winner.

According to Carolyn Becker, a representative for the California Lottery, "the lottery has raised nearly $80 million for public schools just from this one game."

According to a Powerball press release, 36 tickets sold in 16 states and the big winner on Wednesday also matched all five white balls to earn what will typically be $1 million rewards. According to the California lottery website, seven of those tickets were purchased in the state of California, where the winnings total $448,750. Non-jackpot rewards in California can change from fixed amounts listed on the Powerball website depending on the number of winners and ticket sales.

According to Powerball's website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

Since Powerball's April 19 drawing, when a ticket in Ohio matched all six numbers to win the jackpot reward of $252.6 million, there had been 38 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner. This streak ended with Wednesday's win.

Drew Svitko, chair of the Powerball Product Group and executive director of the Pennsylvania Lottery, congratulated the most recent Powerball jackpot winner and the California Lottery. Powerball has encouraged people to aim high and win large for more than 30 years, raising billions of dollars for charitable organizations that support lotteries in the process.

The record-breaking $2.04 billion Powerball lottery prize was won last year by a single winning ticket, also purchased in California. The proprietor of the petrol station that sold the winning ticket thus became a millionaire.

There may still be hope for those who didn't win an instant million dollars on Wednesday thanks to the Mega Millions lottery. The projected annuitized value of Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is $720 million, with a cash value of $369.6 million.
