The almost half-a-billion dollar jackpot is the seventh largest in Powerball history, and reportedly the tenth largest in USA lottery history.

The last Powerball drawing to produce a jackpot victor was on April 1, said California Lottery spokesman Mike Bond. The Powerball jackpot has grown up to $435 million, after more than two months without a victor.

Saturday night's jackpot - $447 million - was the 10th biggest ever.

Officials say the retailer where the winning ticket was sold will receive a $1 million "retailer bonus".

The winning numbers were 20, 26, 32, 38 and 58.

Lottery officials said one ticket, purchased in Sun City, California, matched all the numbers for the grand prize. Alberre says he and his father own the store in Sun City.

"We're very, very grateful for this to happen to our store".

A Powerball player in California will take home the entire $447.8 million jackpot after matching all six numbers on their ticket in Saturday's drawing, lottery officials said.

No one has come forward to claim the bounty yet - 8 a.m. Monday is the earliest the victor can redeem their fortune, but they have up to a year to cash in.

The victor could take 29-year payout or a one-time, before-tax lump sum of $279.1 million. Both prize amounts would be before taxes are deducted.

Earlier in June, Missouri saw even longer delays in identifying a Powerball victor after Dennis Shmigelsky carried around his winning $50,000 ticket for two months.

No one has won the jackpot since April 1, thus the reason for its large size.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
