A winning ticket was sold to the gigantic Powerball Jackpot on Monday night, which continued to soar until it rose to $ 700 million – $ 699.8 million. Lottery officials said the lottery was bought in Albertson, on Moro Bay, a town halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Up to $ 1 million will be available from that store to sell winning tickets.
It is not clear whether a person will receive the full jackpot once the purchase has been verified or if multiple parties have acquired a pool.
The six numbers fitted on the ticket are 12, 22, 54, 66, and 69 white balls and the powerball number is 15.
It is the 5th largest jackpot in Powerball history and the 7th largest in American lottery history.
Late ticket sales exceeded previous estimates of $ 670 million.
It was a historic maker – the first Powerball jackpot to win Monday night since authorities installed the third weekly map on August 23rd. Maps are also held on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
It made it into the record books because it came in at number 41 on the run – the highest number without a big prize winner.
$ 1.586 prize shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee – Powerball set the world record for the biggest jackpot in 2016.
The previous Powerball jackpot win was $ 285.6 million on June 5, 2021. It was sold in Florida.
Holders or holders of the most recent ticket can receive approximately $ 699.8 million annually in 30 payments over 29 years, or a total of $ 496 million in cash. Both before the line.
Monday’s drawing had more than 2.2 million tickets, with prizes ranging from $ 4 to $ 2 million.
Five tickets were $ 1 million winners – they matched all five white balls but failed to hit the red powerball number. They were sold in Arizona, Florida, Virginia and Massachusetts. One buyer in Tennessee matched the five white balls and doubled the prize to $ 2 million by choosing the Power Play feature. It will cost an extra dollar.
Powerball tickets cost $ 2 per play. Tickets are on sale in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9. The chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
