Winning ticket in $1 billion The Powerball jackpot has been sold in California.

California sold the winning ticket for Wednesday’s $1 billion Powerball windfall. Wednesday’s winning numbers were 7-10-11-13-24, with a Powerball of 24.

The winning ticket was purchased at Las Palmitas Mini Market in downtown Los Angeles, according to the website of the California Lottery.

The estimated jackpot was $1 billion, but it was $1.08 billion when the drawing took place on Wednesday night, according to game officials. If the winner chooses the flat sum, they will receive $558.1 million before taxes.

The Powerball jackpot surpassed $1 billion for the third time in the game’s history after no one won Monday night’s drawing, according to officials. The game started in 1992.

The last time the lottery was won was on April 19, and jackpots increase whenever no one wins the top prize.

On Wednesday night, the Powerball website indicated that the jackpot had been reset to $20 million.

In 2015, the game’s terms were altered to make it less likely that someone would win the jackpot but more likely that they would win a prize.

The current odds of winning the jackpot have increased from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292 million. (Mega Millions made adjustments in 2017 to increase jackpots and probabilities.)
