CALIFORNIA - The winning Powerball numbers were drawn Wednesday night: 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball of 10. California lotto officials tweeted almost immediately after that a winning ticket was sold in the state.
It's important to note that the winner of a $1.5 - $1.6 Billion Powerball jackpot will be hit with major taxes. For example in New York City they would ONLY take home $579 Million.
We have a winner in California! A jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Chino Hills. We’re still awaiting results from other states.— California Lottery (@calottery) January 14, 2016
