The last drawing took place on Jan. 9, but failed to produce a winner. This time around, however, things appear to be different.
The California lottery said that a “jackpot-winning ticket” was sold in Chino Hills.
We have a winner in California! A jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Chino Hills. We’re still awaiting results from other states.

If someone matches all the winning numbers, the jackpot would be paid in annual payments over 29 years, or the winner could opt for a lump-sum payment of $930 million. Winners have to pay 39.6 percent of the prize in federal income taxes, in addition to any state taxes.
