California mayor hopes local has winning ticket

The numbers drawn were 20,26,32,38,58 and the Powerball number was 3.The $447.8 million jackpot, a revised amount based on sales, is the seventh-largest jackpot in Powerball game history.Earlier estimates had the jackpot at an estimated $435 million, after Wednesday’s drawing failed to yield a victor for the top prize as no one had matched all the numbers since April 1.But Alberre said he has no idea which customer bought the ticket with all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery.Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, DC; Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.The unnamed victor has a year to claim the jackpot.Alberre owns the store with his father, who has owned it for 26 years.It was not immediately clear if the California player was the sole grand prize victor or if other players also matched all the winning numbers.This big score will come in handy for Alberee’s family, after his was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis earlier this year.The almost half-a-billion dollar jackpot is the seventh largest in Powerball history, and reportedly the tenth largest in US lottery history. The lump sum for this jackpot is around $300 million.The store is at 27985 Bradley Road in the Sun City community in the city of Menifee.Alberre said the store does not yet have any plans for what they will do with the $1 million bonus.The jackpot is the tenth biggest in US history and has odds of winning that are one in 292 million. Both amounts do not figure in a deduction for taxes.
