The winning ticket for the $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot was sold in Southern California, and one of three tickets worth $1.1 million was sold in the Bay Area, California Lottery officials said Tuesday.
The ticket for Monday’s record haul — the largest in U.S. history, was sold at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, in Los Angeles County, according to the lottery.
The ticket matched the numbers 10, 33, 41, 47, 56 and the Powerball number 10. The seller will get $1 million for selling the winning ticket.
California Lottery officials said the south state jackpot win marks the first time a California player has landed in the lottery billionaire club.
One of three tickets matching five numbers — but missing the Powerball number — was sold at 1001 Castro Street, a convenience store in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood.
The other two were sold at Stues Dairy in Gardena, in Los Angeles County; and the Oak Valley 76 gas station in Beaumont, in Riverside County.
Monday’s Powerball drawing was delayed until Tuesday morning because of another lottery’s needing time to complete required security protocols, lottery officials said.
The Powerball drawing for $2.04 billion jackpot was performed at 5:57 a.m., lottery officials said.
