Lottery officials said the world record $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot ticket was sold in California, outside Downtown Los Angeles, ending the wait after a delayed number drawing. It was later revealed the delay was due to Minnesota’s sales verification system crashing. The winning store, Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, gets $1 million bonus for selling it and California public schools gets $156 million thanks to the tickets sold.
There were four tickets in Kentucky…one worth $100,000 and three worth $50,000. The $100,000 winner was sold at a Pilot Travel Center in Sonora. One $50,000 was sold at the Speedway at 8015 Shelbyville Rd, and two other $50,000 winners were sold in Lexington.
