3 winning jackpot tickets in US for $1.6 billion Powerball

An unprecedented $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot will be divided among three winning tickets purchased in Tennessee, California and Florida.
Each ticket is worth $528.8 million, lottery officials said in California, one of 44 states plus Washington D.C. and two U.S. territories that sold millions of Powerball tickets.

The winning numbers were 08 27 34 04 19 and Powerball 10.

There had been 20 Powerball drawings since Nov. 4, the last time there was a winning ticket for the jackpot. This allowed the prize money to reach a record $1.586 billion.
It was the largest lottery prize ever offered in North America, and no other lottery in the world had ever featured a jackpot of that size that could be won on a single ticket.
The winners in Florida and Tennessee have not come forward, lottery officials in those states said, and officials have not said if anyone in California had claimed the prize.
One ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Chino Hills, east of Los Angeles, officials said. Two other winning tickets were sold in Munford, Tennessee, and Melbourne Beach, Florida, lottery officials in those states said.
In November, a Tennessee ticket holder claimed a $144.1 million prize.
