In Altadena, California, USA, a coupon was bought that won the main prize in the Powerball lottery – $ 2.04 billion. This is the highest lottery jackpot in US history. The delayed draw was held on Tuesday morning.

Powerball lottery management announced on Tuesday that when the draw was finally held, with a delay due to the need to complete security protocols, the winner of the main prize was the person who purchased a ticket at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena.

The lucky numbers that won the draw were: 10,33,41,47,56 and an additional: 10. The main prize reached a dizzying height, as the last time the six winning numbers were selected in the draw on August 6, when the prize was $ 20 million.

Prizes of a billion dollars and more in Powerball have previously been recorded in only four draws. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

If the winner decides to make a one-time cash payment, they will receive $ 997.6 million. The entire prize is payable if it is divided into 29-year installments. It is subject to federal taxes reducing the amount by more than a third. Many states also impose an additional tax.

In the next Wednesday draw, the jackpot will be “only” $ 20 million.
