One ticket. One very rich persons. Someone n California holds the Powerball ticket worth $447.8 million.

The numbers on the ticket are 20, 26, 32, 38, 58. The Powerball is 3.

The LA Times had more detail:

According to the California Lottery website, the winning ticket was sold at the Marietta Liquor and Deli on Bradley Road in Sun City, southeast of Riverside.

Officials say the retailer where the winning ticket was sold will receive a $1 million “retailer bonus.”

It costs $2 for a Powerball ticket and a chance to dream of instant riches, but the odds of winning are incredibly small, at one in 292.2 million.

The jackpot grew so large because no one had matched all the numbers since April 1.

24/7 Wall St. has created a guide for lottery winners, which can also be used by anyone who unexpectedly or instantly comes into vast wealth. Any would-be lottery winner, or multiple winners, better have an idea ahead of time about what they should do if they win. Perhaps even more important is what not do if you win!

Winning the lottery has become the new American Dream. A life of hard work and saving up for years just doesn’t have the same sizzle as the instant wealth from winning the lottery. This is immediate gratification that doesn’t require nerves of steel, being smart in business or knowing how to invest, and it doesn’t require all those pesky responsibilities over a lifetime. And to make the American Dream even more bent toward the lottery now, the media and politicians keep telling the public that it is just too hard these days to get ahead and live well.
