Two Bay Area Lottery Tickets Are Worth Over $200,000 Each!
SACRAMENTO – The Bay Area had all the luck last night as two lottery tickets sold in Alameda County hit prizes of over $200,000 each! One was a Fantasy 5 ticket which matched all five numbers to win the top prize of $207,440. The other was a MEGA Millions® ticket which matched five out of six numbers and is worth $201,115.
The Fantasy 5 ticket was sold at Colonial Donuts, which is located at 3318 Lakeshore Avenue in Oakland. The ticket successfully matched the numbers 30, 25, 16, 32 and 6. The MEGA Millions ticket was sold at the Safeway Fuel Station located at 2234 Otis Drive in Alameda. This ticket successfully matched the numbers 47, 10, 40, 14 and 7, missing only the Mega number of 34.
No one matched all six numbers in last night’s MEGA Millions draw, so Friday’s jackpot is an estimated $50 million. The estimated cash value of the jackpot is $36.9 million.
