Gold Ranch sells winning $150 million Powerball ticket
The Gold Ranch Casino and RV Resort in Verdi sold the winning ticket in Saturday’s $150 million Powerball lottery, according to the California Lottery website.
The casino is on the Nevada side and the lottery sales are on the California side.
The winner will get about $60 million if he or she collects the cash option up front and after paying federal income taxes. Or winners can collect the jackpot over 30 years.
The winner matched all five numbers plus the Powerball. The odds of doing that are one in 292,201,338.
The winning numbers: 03-23-32-37-58, Powerball: 22.
The winner has up to a year to claim the Powerball jackpot.
In a statement, Gold Ranch said “one incredibly lucky person” bought the winning Powerball ticket.
It called itself one of California’s busiest lottery locations. Its past jackpots include $122,781 on Dec. 16, 2016, and $340,982 on Jan. 28, 2017.
Mario Ramos-Munoz got the five numbers on a ticket he bought at Hallelujah Junction and won $2.3 million in the June 22 draw. He only lacked the Powerball to win the entire jackpot.
Powerball is played in 44 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
