Winning Powerball tickets sold in California, Tennessee, Florida

- Three winning tickets have been reportedly sold in Tennessee, California and Florida. 

The estimated jackpot was $1.5 billion with a $930 million cash value - the largest lottery jackpot in the world. The lump sum before taxes would be $930 million.

The winning numbers were: 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball: 10.

Spokesman Alex Traverso confirmed the winners for The Associated Press early Thursday in the $1.5 billion drawing. 

Traverso had no further information on where the tickets in Tennessee and Florida were sold, and none of the winners' identities have yet been revealed.

Representatives for the Tennessee and Florida lotteries couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

A spokesman for the California Lottery says a winning Powerball ticket was sold at a store in suburban Los Angeles.

Spokesman Alex Traverso tells The Associated Press the jackpot-winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Chino Hills, about 25 miles northeast of Anaheim.

The identity of the winner is not yet known. It could take several hours before officials know whether any other winning tickets were sold elsewhere.

The odds to win were 1 in 292.2 million.

Officials with the Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Powerball game, had said they expected more than 85 percent of all the possible number combinations would have been bought for the drawing.

Here in Michigan, five $1 million tickets were sold. We're told they were sold in Holly, Grand Rapids, Horton, Iron Mountain and Cadillac. The Holly ticket was sold at the Beacon and Bridge Market on North Saginaw Street.
