1 Person Hits $2B Powerball Jackpot: Report




Lottery officials announced Tuesday that one person matched all the winning numbers to take home Monday’s $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot, the largest in US history.

The lottery announced the winning ticket — which matched all five numbers plus the Powerball — was sold in California.

If the winner opts for the cash payout, they’ll get an estimated $997.6 million lump sum.

One lucky person in Florida earned a $2 million cash prize for matching five numbers, plus selecting Power Play. Twenty-two other people in 16 states have won $1 million, lottery officials said.

Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
