$320,000 Mega Millions® Ticket Purchased in Palmdale!
SACRAMENTO – Somebody in the small city of Palmdale woke up a very lucky person today. That’s because they bought a Mega Millions and matched five out of six numbers to win a cool $320,061!
The lucky person bought their ticket at Palmdale Liquor and JR Markets, located at 2270 East Palmdale Boulevard in Palmdale (Los Angeles County). The ticket matched the numbers 39, 4, 70, 46, and 47, missing only the Mega number 13 in last night’s Mega Millions drawing.
It’s been a win-filled two years in Palmdale as a Mega Millions ticket worth $470,000 was purchased last October and another Mega Millions ticket worth $219,000 was also purchased there in April 2013. The biggest win happened back in 2012 when one Palmdale player won $23 Million playing SuperLotto Plus®.
The Mega Millions jackpot rolls over and is worth an estimated $38 million this Friday.
The California Lottery strongly urges the winner from last night’s draw to sign the back of their ticket in ink, keep it in a safe place then visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. The winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize.
