A ticket with five numbers, but missing the correct Powerball number, in Wednesday's multi-state Powerball lottery drawing was sold at Sunny Donut.
Tickets with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, sold in other states are worth either $1 million or $2 million, but California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis. In this case, that means $6 million.
There were no tickets sold with all six numbers and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $184 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.
The numbers drawn Wednesday were 11, 41, 56, 57, 63 and the Powerball number was 2. The jackpot was $168 million.
Sunny Donut will receive a $30,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The drawing was the 15th since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.
The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
