Sweet Win Just in Time for Valentine’s Day
Two Powerball® Tickets Worth More Than $1.2 Million Each
SACRAMENTO – What’s better than receiving flowers and chocolate on Valentine’s Day? How about a boatload of cash! That’s what two California Lottery players will be getting after matching five of six numbers in last night’s Powerball draw to win $1,294,116 each. Both tickets successfully matched the numbers 54, 37, 34, 25 and 24 – missing only the Powerball number of 29.
One of the tickets was purchased at Moreno Valley Fastrip, which is located at 23991 Sunnymead Boulevard in Moreno Valley (Riverside County). The other ticket was purchased at the ARCO ampm located at 2225 16th Street in Sacramento (Sacramento County). Since both tickets are worth over $1 million, each retailer will receive a bonus of half of 1% of the prize, which in this case will be a bonus of about $6,470.
No one matched all six numbers in last night’s Powerball draw, so Wednesday’s jackpot soars to an estimated $284 million.
