LOS ANGELES (AP) -- No one has come forward yet to claim some of the $1.6 billion Powerball prize, but lottery officials say they know where the three lucky tickets were purchased.

They say one ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven in Chino Hills, California. Another was bought in Munford, Tennessee, north of Memphis, and the third ticket was sold at a Publix grocery store in Melbourne Beach, Florida.

The winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing are 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10.

The winners can opt for annual payments over decades or a lump-sum payment.

(NBC) - Winning jackpot tickets in Wednesday's monster $1.5 billion Powerball drawing were sold in three states, California, Florida and Tennessee, according to California Lottery Deputy Director of Communications Russ Lopez.

One winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Chino Hills, California, in San Bernardino County, east of Los Angeles, officials said.

Details about where the winning tickets were sold in Florida and Tennessee were not yet known. Powerball is played in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The winning numbers were 4, 8, 19. 27, 34, with a Powerball of 10. The multiplier was 2X.

It was the first time that all a ticket matching all five numbers and the Powerball number had been sold since the jackpot began at $40 million on Nov. 7.

With no winner, the pot rolled over again and again — 20 times in all, swelling to $500 million last week and then $900 million in Saturday's drawing, and then to $1.586 billion.

The jackpot is the largest in history. The odds of winning the jackpot were 1 in 292.2 million.

After the winning Southern California ticket was announced, local TV helicopters captured images of a large crowd of people gathering at the 7-Eleven. Crowds were seen chanting "Chino Hills! Chino Hills!"

California also had 12 tickets match 5 of the 6 numbers, the lottery commission said.

Matching five numbers, but not the Powerball number, can carry a $1 million prize, according to Powerball, but the California Lottery said the amounts won on those tickets was not immediately known late Wednesday.

National Powerball sales Tuesday were more than $326 million and sales nationwide on Wednesday were expected to reach $600 million, Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery Commission and chief of the Powerball Game said earlier Wednesday.

Wednesday's huge jackpot surpassed the previous Powerball record of $590.5 million, which was won in Florida on May 18, 2013.

Chino Hills is a city of around 77,000 about 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

UPDATE: California Lottery is reporting a jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Chino Hills.

Iowa Lottery players won nearly 225,000 prizes in Wednesday’s world-record Powerball jackpot drawing.

A total of 224,656 plays purchased by Iowa Lottery players won prizes ranging from $4 up to $2 million.

Seven tickets purchased in Iowa came within one number of having at least a share of the jackpot. 

One of those tickets won a $2 million prize. The ticket initially matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball to win a $1 million prize, but the person who bought the ticket also added the Power Play to the purchase, which multiplied the prize to $2 million.

Six other Iowa tickets also were one number away from the jackpot, matching four of the first five numbers and the Powerball. Three of those tickets each won a $50,000 prize, while three others each won a prize of $100,000.

***********************************************

Winning Powerball Numbers: 4,8,19,27,34, Powerball 10.  Powerplay is 2.

The jackpot is now an estimated $1.5 billion.
