Local News

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL/KTLA) — A winning ticket for the latest Powerball was sold at a Sacramento convenience store.

Officials said two winning tickets hit all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot to split an approximately $632.6 million prize — the seventh-largest in the game’s history.

The winning numbers for the drawing were 6, 14, 25, 33, 46 and the Powerball 17.

According to the California lottery site, the lucky Sacramento ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven on Wyndham Drive. The other was sold in Wisconsin.

“The lucky ticket holders will split the $632.6 million jackpot. Each ticket is worth an annuitized $316.3 million or $225.1 million cash,” a Powerball news release stated. “Both prize options are prior to taxes.

Each retailer that sold the tickets will also receive a $1 million bonus.

Another top-winning ticket, which got five out of five numbers, was sold in South Pasadena at a Chevron. That person won about $1.3 million.

The last big Powerball winning ticket was sold at an Albertsons in Morro Bay in October, with a prize amount of $685 million. 

That winner was able to choose between the annuity option paid over 29 years or the cash option of $496 million. Both prize options are subject to taxes.

Powerball’s jackpot rolled over 39 times since then, bringing about another huge lottery win in the Golden State.

The game’s largest jackpot is still the $1.586 billion prize won on Jan. 13, 2016, which remains the largest in U.S. lottery history. Three winning tickets hit all six numbers for the massive prize, including one that was purchased in California — also at a 7-Eleven.

Powerball is played in 45 states, plus Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held at 8 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
