(NEW YORK) — The California Lottery says one winner of the world record-breaking Powerball has been reported.

The California Lottery said in a tweet that “a jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Chino Hills.” Results from other states are still coming in.

The winning Powerball numbers were drawn Wednesday night: 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball of 10.

By early this evening, the jackpot was estimated to be $1.5 billion for an annuitized payout or $930 million for a single cash payout.

The jackpot has reached world-record levels after 20 drawings without a winner. This Powerball jackpot first started at $40 million on Nov. 7, 2015.

Millions of Americans were expected to watch Wednesday night’s drawing.
