A winning ticket was sold in the US state of California for the record $2.04 billion Powerball on Tuesday.

The winning numbers drawn were 10, 33, 41, 47, 56 and 10.

The ticket was sold at Joe's Service Centre in Altadena, an unincorporated territory north-east of Los Angeles. The odds of winning the jackpot were one in 292.2 million.

Tuesday morning's drawing followed one on Saturday that was the 40th in a row without someone winning the jackpot.

The drawing was delayed from Monday after the California Lotto said one lottery was “still processing its sales and play data”. All 48 participating lotteries must submit that information before the winning numbers can be selected.

The winner can collect their winnings in a one-time lump sum or in payouts stretched over 29 years.

The current $2.04bn jackpot is a world record, the California Lotto said.
