Winning ticket sold in California for $448 million Powerball jackpot

(ABC News) -- There is at least one winning ticket for Saturday's $447.8 million Powerball jackpot, and California Lottery has confirmed that it was purchased in Southern California.
 
The ticket was sold in Sun City in Riverside County, according to the lottery. It is unclear if there are winning tickets in other states.
 
The numbers drawn were 32, 26, 20, 38, 58. The Powerball was 3.
 
"We will not know who California’s latest Powerball winner is until at least Monday morning at 8 a.m. That's the soonest they’ll be able to claim their prize," California Lottery said in a statement. "Whoever the winner turns out to be will now have the option of taking the entire $447.8 million spread out over 30 years, or they can elect to take the lump sum amount of $279.1 million."
 
As for Marietta Liquor & Deli, where the ticket was sold, "It will be receiving a huge $1 million retailer bonus just for selling the winning ticket. The retailer bonus comes from a separate fund and is not subtracted from the winner’s jackpot prize," the statement said.
 
Saturday's jackpot is the 7th largest jackpot in Powerball history, according to California Lottery.
 
The odds of winning are only one in 292.2 million.
 
The jackpot has been steadily rising since April 1, the last time someone matched all of the numbers.
 
Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
