A record-breaking $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot is going to someone who bought a ticket in California, lottery officials said Tuesday. 

The lucky ticket that matched all six numbers was sold at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena, 17 miles northeast of Los Angeles, the California Lottery said. 

There are multiple ways to win money with a Powerball ticket, beginning with matching just the Powerball number. In California on Tuesday, there were a 1,634,305 winning tickets, with prizes starting at $4, in addition to the jackpot ticket. Three California tickets matched five numbers in Gardena, Beaumont, and San Francisco; these ticket holders each take home $1,149,661.

After the drawing was delayed Monday, the winner numbers were were drawn Tuesday morning. Those were 10, 33, 41, 47 and 56, and the red Powerball was 10. 

A Powerball jackpot starts at $20 million and grows each week if nobody wins. No one had matched all six numbers since Aug. 3, allowing the jackpot to grow to the highest amount ever. The previous record was a $1.586 billion prize won by three Powerball ticketholders in 2016.

The Multi-State Lottery Association said Monday night’s scheduled drawing was delayed by nearly 10 hours until Tuesday because a participating lottery had issues processing its sales data. 

“Powerball requires all 48 participating lotteries to submit their sales and play data prior to the winning numbers being selected. Once Powerball receives the outstanding submission, the drawing can proceed,” the Multi-State Lottery Association said in a statement.

The $2.04 billion prize is for a winner who chooses an annuity, paid annually over 29 years. Nearly all winners instead opt for cash, which was valued at $997.6 million.
