Winner of $447.8 Million Powerball Jackpot Will Receive 10th Largest Lottery Prize in U.S. History
The deli that sold the ticket said they feel "blessed" to be a part of someone's good fortune.
Someone is about to be $447.8 million richer.
The single winning Powerball ticket matching all six numbers was sold in California, and will be the 10th largest lottery prize in U.S. history, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.
While the winner has not yet come forward to claim the prize, the co-owner of Marietta Liquor & Deli in Riverside County, where the ticket was sold, said he feels “blessed” to be a part of someone’s good fortune.
“It’s a very good feeling to be the winning store,” said Matthew Alberre in an interview with NBC News.
Vendors in California are entitled to a $1 million retailer bonus for selling the winning ticket, but Alberre said he does not know anything about the prize yet, and does not know what he and his dad, the other owner of the deli, will do with the money.
The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night were 20-26-32-38-58 and the Powerball number was 3. The odds of winning were one in 292.2 million.
The winner must come forward within a year of the drawing to receive either an annuity, which pays off over 29 years, or to take home the cash prize of $279.1 million.
