Fontana Man Scoops Record Breaking Prize

A man from Fontana scooped the largest lottery win ever to go to a player from San Bernardino County last week when he matched all five numbers and the Powerball in the US Powerball drawing on Saturday, July 19, 2014.

The California Lottery announced the news on Thursday, but they are keeping the winner's identity under wraps until he is presented at a press conference next week. The lucky winner apparently needs a little time to come to terms with newfound wealth.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased from the Cardenas Market, at 8963 Sierra Ave, the day before the draw. The store will receive a $300,000 bonus for selling a winning ticket.
