Los Angeles has yet another billion dollar Powerball winner after Wednesday night’s drawing — marking the third such win in the past year.
The ticket, worth a whopping $1.765 billion, which had the winning numbers — 22, 24, 40, 52, and 64 and the Powerball is 10 — was sold at Midway Market & Liquor, located on 6032 Frazier Mountain Park Road in Frazier Park.
The jackpot is the second-largest in lottery history, just behind theby Los Angeles man Edwin Castro back in Nov. 2022.
Prior to the win, 33 consecutive drawings were completed without a big winner.
Now, the lucky player will be left with two options, a lump sum of nearly $774 million dollars, or an annuity that will pay out for almost 30 years to come.
Two tickets matching five numbers, just missing the Powerball number, were also sold in the Southland. Those tickets, worth approximately $760k were sold at:
- MLS Mini Mart, located on 3570 Homestead Road in Santa Clara,
- Atlantic Wine & Spirit, located on 504 S. Atlantic Boulevard in Monterey Park.
Just months ago in July, another billionaire was born in Los Angeles, when a ticket worth $1.08 billion sold at a convenience store in the downtown area. No winner has yet been announced for that prize.
The chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
