A nurse identified by her employer as being the California Powerball jackpot winner, is likely not a new millionaire after all.

A spokesman for the owner of a healthcare and wellness center in California told NBC 4 Los Angeles and other news outlets that a nurse at the facility had won the prize purchased by her employer.

The woman was told she was a winner in a text message from her son.

Lottery officials had not confirmed the prize claim and say they were skeptical after seeing a picture of the ticket.

NBC 4 Los Angeles spoke with a Lottery spokesman about the matter. 

The daughter of the woman also told the Los Angeles Times this was a misunderstanding.

So the California winner, and the two other winners in Florida, and Tennessee remain a mystery.

Other winning tickers were bought in Munford, Tennessee; and Melbourne Beach, Florida.  

The winners overcame odds of 1 in 292.2 million to land on all the numbers: 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10. They can let their winnings be invested and thereby collect 30 annual payments totaling an estimated $533 million, or take their third of $983.5 million in cash all at once.
