City. This lucky retailer will be receiving a $1 million retailer bonus just for selling the winning ticket.
The numbers drawn were 32, 26, 20, 38 and 58. The cash prize would be $273.1 million.
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.
Saturday's jackpot is the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball history, according to California Lottery.
Matthew Alberre owns Marietta Liquor & Deli in southern California's Riverside County with his father, Alberre Alberre.
While $448 million seems like a lot of money, alas, the victor of this weekend's drawing won't walk away with the full amount.
The earliest the victor could claim their prize was 8 a.m. Sunday; the victor will have one year from the draw date to come forward.
Menifee Mayor Neil Winter said he hoped a local resident bought the winning ticket at the store in a heavily visited intersection that has sold winners before but never for so much. Today, they are part of Menifee, population 89,000, but those living in Sun City still proudly call the community by its original name, Blais said.
It was a switch that essentially traded lower odds for increased payouts, such as Saturday night's $448 million victor.
