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 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.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Virginia and is worth $1 million, 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 drawing was the 13th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

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.

Floriston’s population is 73, according to the 2010 Census. The ticket was sold in a casino on the Nevada border.

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.
