Chino Hills Powerball Jackpot Winners Come Forward to Claim Prize More Than Six Months After Drawing
A couple who bought a winning Powerball ticket in Chino Hills have claimed their prize after more than six months, California Lottery officials said.
Marvin and Mae Acosta were among three big winners of $528.8 million from a January drawing, the largest prize in California Lottery history. The other winning tickets were sold in Tennessee and Florida and the total jackpot was worth about $1.6 billion, officials said.
The Acostas bought the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway. They have opted to take the cash option of $327.8 million before federal taxes.
The 7-Eleven also received a maximum bonus of $1 million for selling the winning ticket, officials said.
