By Anadolu staff

ANKARA (AA) – The lucky winner of an over $1 billion California lottery ticket bought it at a neighborhood store, the Las Palmitas Mini Market in Los Angeles, the state lottery announced on social media.

The jackpot had hit $1.08 billion, making it the sixth-largest jackpot in the US history.

The odds of winning the jackpot are admittedly slim – about one in 292 million for Powerball.

The biggest-ever Powerball jackpot, valued at $2.04 billion, was awarded just last November.

After taxes, the winner of the $1.08 billion prize is set to net some $558.1 million.
