A single winning ticket for a whopping $447.8 million Powerball lottery jackpot was sold by the Marietta Liquor and Deli store in Sun City, California, the California Lottery said on late Saturday.

The lucky numbers drawn on Saturday night are 20-26-32-38-58, and the Powerball number is 3.

It's already the eighth largest Powerball jackpot ever and likely to become the seventh largest before the drawing on Saturday night June 10. You have until 9:45 p.m. tonight to get one.

No one has won the jackpot since April 1, thus the reason for its large size. California is one of 44 states, plus Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, that participate in Powerball.

About four months later, a Trenton woman and her seven adult children shared a $429.6 million Powerball prize.

The Powerball jackpot has jumped to $435 million, after Wednesday's drawing failed to yield a victor for the top prize.

The odds of a $2 ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. The money comes from a separate fund that is not part of the winner's jackpot. All of them say that the profits provide billions in funding to schools and other social programs.
