Two winning $1.6 million Powerball tickets sold in Southern California



Two lucky Southern Californians are the state’s newest winners after numbers for the $1.13 billion Powerball jackpot were drawn Wednesday night.

The winning numbers were 11, 38, 41, 62, 65. The Powerball number was 15 and the PowerPlay was 3X.

Two tickets matched five numbers and will take home $1,622,808. The winning tickets were sold at an Albertsons in San Dimas and Oxnard Shores Bottle Shop in Oxnard.

Since the tickets were missing the Powerball numbers, the main jackpot will increase to an estimated $1.23 billion for Saturday night’s drawing.

Twelve other lucky Californians hit four numbers plus the Powerball and will take home $19,682.

Wednesday night’s jackpot was the eighth-largest in U.S. lottery history. The odds of winning the top Powerball prize is 1 in 292.2 million. The jackpot has been growing for over three months when the last player won the jackpot on Jan. 1.

Since then, there have been 39 consecutive drawings without anyone matching all six numbers.

Southern California is home to several historic Powerball winners including the winner of last summer’s $1.08 billion Powerball jackpot who was revealed on March 29.

In February 2022 after months of drawings, a winning ticket for the historic $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot was claimed by Los Angeles resident Edwin Castro after he purchased the ticket at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena.

The Powerball jackpot winner can choose between the annuitized payout of gradually increasing payments over 29 years or the lump sum.
