The winning numbers were 20-26-32-38-58, with a Powerball number 3.

Chris Raff of Lincoln, Neb., hands a Powerball ticket to a customer in Omaha, Neb., Saturday, June 10, 2017.

"California is one of just three states that exempt lottery winnings from state income taxes-so long as the victor is a state resident who bought the ticket in California", noted Sean Cockerham of the Sacramento Bee in a 2016 report.

Matthew Alberre, the store's manager, said he was with family celebrating his cousin's high school graduation when he received word about the winning ticket.

The unnamed victor has a year to claim the jackpot.

There is at least one winning ticket for Saturday's $447.8 million Powerball jackpot, and California Lottery has confirmed that it was purchased in Southern California.

The jackpot figures are based on the victor choosing to take an annuity that pays out each year for 29 years. The cash prize would be $273.1 million.

The ticket sold in the Sun City area of Menifee in Riverside County is worth an estimated $448 million before taxes are taken into account.

The lucky numbers drawn Saturday night that will claim the 10th largest lottery prize in USA history are 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number is 3. California is one of 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, that participate in Powerball. His store gets $1 million from the state as the lucky retailer. The homes today are part of Menifee, population 89,000, but those living in Sun City still proudly call the community by its original name, Blais said.
