California Powerball Player Hits Jackpot: $1.08 Billion, Third Highest Ever in Last 3 Months

A Powerball player in California won the third-largest prize in Powerball history - $1.08 billion. 

The winning numbers for the jackpot were 7, 10, 11, 13, 24, and the red Powerball 24. 

The winning ticket was sold at Las Palmitas Mini Market convenience store in downtown Los Angeles. 

The winner can choose between a $1.08 billion payday in installments or a lump sum payment estimated at $558.1 million. 

" Three other ticketholders won a $2 million prize for matching the white balls and the Power Play "

36 individuals, including 2 in New Jersey and 5 in New York, won $1 million for matching all five white balls. 

This is the third time someone in California has won at least $1 billion through Powerball. 

The previous record was a $2.04 billion jackpot won by Edwin Castro, who chose the cash payment and faced accusations of stealing the winning ticket. 

In 2016, Marvin and Mae Acosta, a couple from Chino Hills, California, won part of a $1.6 billion jackpot and opted for the cash payment. 

The Acosta couple remained anonymous for six months and expressed their desire for privacy despite their massive win.
