The winning Powerball numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball of 10. The estimated jackpot was over $1.5 billion. The previous draw on Saturday was the 19th without a grand prize winner according to a BBC report. Nearly $2.8 billion was spent on Powerball ticket sales from the last jackpot to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday. Almost immediately after the numbers were drawn, California lotto officials tweeted that a winning ticket was sold in the state. The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Chino Hills, a suburb east of Los Angeles. California Lottery spokesman Russ Lopez said there were two more winning tickets sold, one in Tennessee and one in Florida.
