Powerball: Two winning tickets for $632 million jackpot sold


(KTLA) — Two winning tickets hit all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot to split an approximately $632.6 million prize — the seventh-largest in the game’s history.

The winning numbers for the drawing were 6, 14, 25, 33, 46 and the Powerball 17.

One of the lucky tickets was purchased in Sacramento, California, at a 7-Eleven, according to the California Lottery. The other was sold in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Lottery said.

“The lucky ticket holders will split the $632.6 million jackpot. Each ticket is worth an annuitized $316.3 million or $225.1 million cash,” a Powerball news release stated. “Both prize options are prior to taxes.

Each retailer that sold the tickets will also receive a $1 million bonus.

This is the second time in three months that someone in California has struck it big playing Powerball.

Three months ago, a single ticket bought in Morro Bay earned the $699.8 million grand prize, which remains the fifth-largest in the game’s history.

Powerball’s jackpot rolled over 39 times since then, bringing about another huge lottery win in the Golden State.

The game’s largest jackpot is still the $1.586 billion prize won on Jan. 13, 2016, which remains the largest in U.S. lottery history. Three winning tickets hit all six numbers for the massive prize, including one that was purchased in California — also at a 7-Eleven.

Powerball is played in 45 states, plus Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held at 8 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
