A lucky individual from Southern California has become the state's latest millionaire thanks to a $725 million Powerball jackpot drawn on a Saturday night 

The winning combination consisted of the numbers 1, 12, 20, 33, 66, and the Powerball number 21 

One fortunate ticket holder matched five numbers, securing a prize of $5,422,749. This winning ticket was purchased at Thirst Quencher Liquor in Burbank 

Since the winning ticket lacked the Powerball number, the primary jackpot will soar to an estimated $785 million for the upcoming Monday night's draw 

Five other Californians also had reason to celebrate, as they matched four numbers plus the Powerball, entitling them to a prize of $22,588 

The Saturday night jackpot ranked as the eighth-largest in the history of the Powerball game and the third-largest of 2023 

It fell behind a $754.6 million jackpot in Washington in February and a $1.08 billion prize won by a Californian in July 

California witnessed two massive Powerball jackpots in the past year, including a record-breaking $2.04 billion prize, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history 

and the aforementioned $1.08 billion payout, which dwarfed the current jackpot 

The jackpot winner faces a choice between receiving gradual, increasing payments over 29 years or opting for a lump-sum payment 

Powerball is a widely-played lottery game, available in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands 

Interestingly, only five of these jurisdictions have never sold a Powerball jackpot-winning ticket: Maine, Mississippi, North Dakota, Wyoming, and the U.S. Virgin Islands
