$447.8 Million Powerball Winner Sold in California

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

A huge Powerball winning ticket was sold in Southern California last week, with the winner taking home a huge $447.8 million jackpot.

The win is the tenth-largest lottery jackpot ever won in the United States, and the ticket was sold at Marietta Liquor and Delo, according to a California State Lottery release. The winner has not redeemed their ticket yet, but they will have one year to do so. Once the ticket is redeemed, the winner can choose for a 29 year payout period for the full amount, or take a $279.1 million lump sum payout. For their part, the deli will take home a $1 million bonus for selling the ticket.

We will be updating this story as we learn more about the win.

Now, that's what I call a Jackpot hit! Maybe he/she have to choose the deferred payout instead of loosing like 35% of the win.

That is just beyond my understanding, crazy winning amount. So it is a gard decision to make cause we never know how long we'll live. But the person will have to be super careful.

Amazing! I'd go the lump sum payout. Way more certainty with the lump sum.

Wow, this is really surprising. Is there a sole winner ? Wow, fantastic.
And the owner of the deli must be very very happy 🙂

Yes you're maybe right klaw, certainly I want to be solving that dilemma 😉 there's probably not a wrong choice, but why you need that much at once anyway? 🤑
