Lottery officials in the US state of California confirmed on Wednesday that a winning ticket for a 1.5 billion dollar Powerball jackpot was sold outside Los Angeles.

Crowds celebrated the news outside a 7-Eleven store in California's Chino Hills, where the ticket was purchased.

Locations in the states of Florida and Tennessee have also sold winning tickets.

That leaves at least 3 people to split the winnings, although the identity of the winners was not yet known.

The immediate cash payout is worth about 930 million dollars. An annual payment option over 29 years is also available. Powerball is played in 44 US states, Washington DC, and two US territories.
