According to lottery officials, a winning Powerball ticket purchased in California came close to winning the grand prize but still made $5.4 million.
On Saturday, September 23, there was no winner of the $750 million Powerball jackpot; nevertheless, the California Lottery said that a fortunate player in California had five perfect numbers and just the Powerball number was missing.
According to authorities, Thirst Quencher Liquor on North Glenoaks Boulevard in Burbank is where the winning ticket was sold. In California, around 200,000 additional tickets yielded smaller prizes.
According to Powerball authorities, players in Florida and New York also got five winning numbers without using the Powerball.
According to California lottery officials, the anticipated prize for the Powerball drawing on Monday, September 25, is $785 million.
According to KTLA, the Saturday jackpot was the third greatest in 2023—the year that a winning $1 billion ticket was sold in California—and the ninth largest in Powerball history overall. As of yet, no one has claimed that jackpot.
A player has to match the red Powerball and all five white balls in order to win the jackpot in the Powerball game.
The likelihood of winning the grand prize is 1 in 292,201,338. The price of the $2 tickets is available on the day of the drawing, with state-specific sales hours applying.
