Three lucky winners will split the $1.5 billion jackpot! The odds were 1 in 292,201,338.00 to have a winning ticket and it turns out the golden tickets were in Florida, California and Tennessee!
We have three winners! Their identities have yet to be revealed but we do know that they will split the unprecedented $1.5 billion jackpot. The lucky winners are most likely still in shock and trying to process what they’ll even do with such an obscene amount of money. The winning numbers were: 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball of 10.
You might be wondering what they’ll all get and after taxes and it’s $528.8 each — which is still a ton of money! One of the winning tickets was sold at a 7-11 in Chino Hills, Calif., and the owner will also get $1 million for selling the winning ticket. “I didn’t expect this big crowd but my Chino Hills customers love me and I love them,” owner, Balibi Atwal said.
Individuals across the country were trying to get the winning ticket up until the final minute. It’s been reported that ticket sales reached record levels and that more than $1 million were sold an hour in Texas! We can understand considering this was the biggest jackpot in history. California was also the top selling ticket state in the nation, they had 12 tickets that had five out of the six numbers. But don’t worry, there are other prizes being awarded too! There were actually second prize tickets sold in Pennsylvania and New Jersey worth $1 million and another at $2 million!
Second prize tickets were sold in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At least one ticket won $2 million in New Jersey. At least one ticket worth $1 million was sold in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
The jackpot had been on the rise since Nov. 4, when the jackpot was at $40 million and no one was winning! We are happy that these people won and we can’t wait to find out who they are. Hopefully they agree to reveal their identities so we can find out how they plan to spend their fortunes!
