At Least Three Winning Powerball Tickets
Lottery officials and several media outlets report there are at least three winning tickets for the January 13 $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot, one in California, one in Tennessee and one in Florida.
The winning numbers are 4-8-19-27-34, Powerball 10.
As can be expected in the hours following the Wednesday night drawing, the winners have not been identified.
The Multi-State Lottery Association says a single payment choice would be worth $930 million prior to taxes, had there been a single winner.
So far, it's only known the winning ticket in California was sold in the Los Angeles suburb of Chino Hills.
Leading up to the drawing, odds-makers were putting the chances of getting the right combination at 292 million to 1.
The $1.6 billion dollar jackpot was the largest in lottery history and drew players not only from all over the United States but also Canada and through brokers in other countries around the world.
