For the third time in less than a year, a Powerball jackpot-winning ticket worth more than $1 billion has been sold in Southern California, this time crowning a $1.73 billion winner in Frazier Park.
The winning numbers from Wednesday’s drawing were 22, 24, 40, 52, 64 and the Powerball 10.
A single ticket matching all six numbers was sold at Midway Market & Liquor at 6032 Frazier Mountain Park Road in Kern County, according to the California Lottery.
In the Bay Area, a ticket matching five numbers but not the Powerball number was sold in Santa Clara. The ticket, worth $760,111, was sold at MLS Mini Mart #2 at 3570 Homestead Road.
In Monterey Park, another ticket matching five of the numbers was sold at Atlantic Wine & Spirit at 504 S. Atlantic Boulevard.
Before Wednesday, there had been 35 consecutive drawings without a big winner, stretching back to July 19 when a ticket worth $1.08 billion was sold at Las Palmitas Mini Market on Wall Street in downtown Los Angeles.
The $1.73 billion jackpot is the world’s second-largest lottery prize, second only to the historic $2.04 billion Powerball won by a player in Altadena, California last November.
