MENIFEE, Calif. (AP) - A sole winning Powerball ticket worth $447.8 million and matching all six numbers was sold in Southern California and will claim the 10th largest lottery prize in USA history, lottery officials said Sunday.

Marietta Liquor & Deli in Sun City, Calif., sold the lucky ticket containing all six winning numbers for the 10th largest prize in USA history.

The winning numbers are 20-26-32-38-58 with a Powerball number of 3.

The owner of a Southern California liquor store says he doesn't know who bought the winning $447.8 million Powerball ticket. Those figures are just the amounts withheld up front; your final tax burden is likely to be even higher.


The last Powerball drawing to produce a jackpot victor was on April 1, said California Lottery spokesman Mike Bond.

Saturday night's jackpot - $447 million - was the 10th biggest ever.

The Powerball lottery jackpot has grown to an estimated $435 million, after more than two months without a victor.

Alberre says he and his father own the store in Sun City.


The jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has grown to an estimated $435 million, the eighth-largest in Powerball history. That is the soonest that the prize will be able to be claimed.

"It's a very good feeling to be the winning store", Matthew Alberre told NBC News on Sunday, adding that they feel "blessed" for playing a role in the win.

Menifee has about 89,000 residents. The last time anyone won the jackpot was April 1.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, DC; Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
