$448 million Powerball ticket sold at liquor store in Riverside County

There was one jackpot winning Powerball ticket sold in California in Saturday's $447.8 million grand prize drawing, the lottery game said on its website.

Saturday's jackpot is the seventh-largest in Powerball's history, according to the California lottery. Those numbers were 20, 26, 32, 38, 58 and the Powerball number 3. The other option of a lump-sum payout would reduce the cash prize to $279 million.

A SOLE winning lottery ticket in the USA has bagged the entire £350 million jackpot, officials have confirmed. Both amounts do not figure in a deduction for taxes.

The owner of a Southern California liquor store says he feels blessed for selling the winning Powerball ticket.

Alberre owns the store with his father, who has owned it for 26 years.

United Kingdom prime minister insists she is staying put
May's co-chiefs of staff, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, handed in their resignations on Saturday following the disastrous election.

Menifee Mayor Neil Winter said he hoped a local resident bought the winning ticket at the store in a heavily visited intersection that has sold winners before but never for so much.

Alberre says the store just off a highway caters to retirees who live in Sun City and motorists who are passing through.

A Powerball spokesman said it may take some time to determine whether someone won an estimated $435 million jackpot Saturday, the Associated Press reported. California is one of 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, that participate in Powerball.

They shared in a ticket that matched the five numbers in Wednesday's drawing, but not the Powerball.
