Two POWERBALL® Tickets Sold in Southern California Split $1.7 Million Prize


SACRAMENTO – While no one in California won last night’s POWERBALL drawing, two lucky players did match five out of six numbers and will split a prize worth more than $1.7 million, making each ticket worth $873,083 to be exact! 
The first winning ticket was sold at Circle K, which is located at 6908 Indiana Avenue in Riverside. The second ticket was sold at Avalon Arco & SN Mart, which is located at 9600 South Avalon Boulevard in Los Angeles. The tickets successfully matched the numbers 7, 10, 35, 32 and 22, missing only the Powerball number of 19.
South Carolina sold a ticket that won last night’s $399.4 million jackpot, so the jackpot for Saturday’s POWERBALL draw will be an estimated $40 million.

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.

POWERBALL is a multistate game played in California (and 42 other states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Draw times are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. PST. Tickets sales are suspended from 7:00 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. the day of the draw. Tickets are $2 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s POWERBALL site for more information on how to play.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
