There was a California winner in the record-setting billion dollar Powerball jackpot, but not in Sacramento.
The winning ticket was purchased in the San Bernardino County town of Chino Hills at a 7-Eleven convenience market. So far, the winner or winners have not come forward.
Two more winning tickets were sold in Tennessee and Florida. The jackpot of nearly 1.6 billion will be split among the holders of the three tickets with the numbers 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball of 10.
A dozen tickets were only one number away from winning in the state, including one bought in Vacaville at the 7-Eleven store, 2000 Nut Tree Road. There, someone matched five of six numbers, but missed the Powerball number 10 in Wednesday night’s draw.
When it comes to winners, 7-Eleven stores were lucky. Not only was the big California winning ticket purchased at the Chino Hills 7-Eleven, three of the runner-up tickets in California with five of six numbers were bought at 7-Eleven markets.
