San Jose Fantasy 5 Ticket Hits $289,000 Top Prize!


POWERBALL® Ticket Sold In San Jose Two Months Ago Worth $256,000 Remains Unclaimed

SACRAMENTO – San Jose has seen a lot of luck the past few months when it comes to California Lottery tickets. The latest big win happened last night as one lucky player purchased a winning Fantasy 5 ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 2440 Almaden Expressway in San Jose. That player matched the winning numbers of 32, 25, 1, 20 and 13. That ticket is worth $289, 471.

Meanwhile, a winning POWERBALL ticket sold on May 15th at Capitol Shell, which is located at 1601 North Capitol Avenue in San Jose, still has not been claimed. That ticket matched five winning numbers of 2, 11, 26, 34, and 41, but missed the Powerball number 32 and is worth $256,317.

POWERBALL has been very good to the Bay Area. Remember, a 22-year old college student won $2.3 million on a ticket sold in San Jose. His was one of two tickets that matched five numbers in the historic POWERBALL draw on May 18. Since nobody won the jackpot in Saturday’s draw, the jackpot for Wednesday’s POWERBALL draw has soared to $116 million.

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

Fantasy 5 offers some of the best odds of any California Lottery game. A player wins the Fantasy 5 jackpot simply by matching five numbers out of a field of 39. Winning numbers are drawn every day. The top prize starts at $50,000 and increases daily until it is hit. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers.

And be sure to participate in the California Lottery’s Fantasy 5 Bonus Bucks promotion. For every purchase of $5 or more of Fantasy 5 on a single ticket you will automatically receive a Fantasy 5 Bonus Bucks code. Enter the code at to participate in weekly draws for a chance to win cash prizes up to $10,000.

POWERBALL is a multistate game, played in California and 44 other jurisdictions (42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Players pick five numbers from 1 to 59 plus a Powerball number from 1 to 35. 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.
