A piece of news that will make lottery history! In the drawing held on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, a ticket sold in California became the lucky winner of the Powerball jackpot, with an astounding amount of $1.08 billion, ranking as one of the largest prizes in the history of this thrilling game, according to the official Powerball website.
The winning numbers that changed the life of the fortunate winner were 7, 13, 10, 24, 11, and the Powerball number 24, turning the dream of fortune into reality for the holder of this ticket.
The prize offers the winner the option to choose between an annuitized payment of $1.08 billion or a lump sum of $558.1 million, both before taxes, providing a variety of possibilities to enjoy this immense sum of money, as stated by Powerball.
In addition to the fortunate jackpot winner, 36 tickets sold in 16 states matched the five white balls, granting them prizes of $1 million in most cases, according to a press release from Powerball.
Prior to this triumph, there were 38 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner since the drawing on April 19th in Powerball, when a ticket in Ohio matched all six numbers to win a jackpot valued at $252.6 million.
