Powerball jackpot up to $435M, 10th largest in US history

At least one lucky person in California had all the winning numbers drawn on Saturday's Powerball drawing, lottery officials said.

"There was one victor sold by the California Lottery for the last drawing's $447,800,000 grand prize", according to a statement.

The twice-weekly game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The winning numbers for the $435 million Powerball are 32, 26, 20, 38, 58.

Saturday's $447.8 million prize means that six of the 10 largest Powerball jackpots ever have happened since the start of 2016.

About 2.7 million additional players won prizes worth more than $21 million, according to the Powerball website. The estimated cash value for Saturday's drawing is $273 million. The odds of winning $1 million is 1 in 11,688,053 and the odds of winning $50,000 is 1 in 913,129. The money comes from a separate fund that is not part of the winner's jackpot. A jackpot closing in on half a billion dollars will do that. If you win the jackpot prize, you have the option of either an annuitized prize that's paid over 29 years, or 30 payments including the first immediate payment, or a cash lump sum payment.
