Powerball Numbers Chosen, At Least One Winner In California

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lottery officials have announced the numbers drawn for Wednesday night's record $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot.

California Lottery says at least one winning ticket was sold in Chino Hills matching all six winning numbers drawn, which were 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10.

The odds of winning are 1 in 292.2 million.

Officials with the Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Powerball game, said they expected more than 85 percent of the possible number combinations would have been bought for the drawing.

If someone matches all the winning numbers, the jackpot would be paid in annual payments over 29 years, or the winner could opt for a lump-sum payment of $930 million. Winners have to pay 39.6 percent of the prize in federal income taxes, in addition to any state taxes.

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states, as well as the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

But residents in the six states that don't participate are finding ways to get their hands on tickets. Some of the biggest Powerball sales have come from cities bordering states that don't sell the tickets, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The association oversees the Powerball Lottery, but management rotates annually among member states.
