A ticket with all six numbers in Saturday evening’s multi-state Powerball lottery drawing was sold at a casino in the tiny northeastern California town of Floriston — population 73, as of the most recent census data — located on the Nevada border, and its owner has 60 days to choose whether to accept the lump sum payment of $104,821,802.94 or the $150 million jackpot paid out over 30 years.

There were no tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 19, 22, 52, 56, 67 and the Powerball number was 21.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The jackpot for Wednesday’s draw will be $40 million.
