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, according to the California Lottery.
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.
Also in Southern California, in Monterey Park, a ticket matching five of the numbers, worth nearly $1 million was sold at Atlantic Wine & Spirit at 504 S. Atlantic Boulevard.
Earlier this week, a $1 million Powerball ticket was sold in Orange County.
